Date set for Community Awards 2016

The date for this year’s Kilcullen Community Awards presentations has been set for Thursday 3 November, writes Brian Byrne.

In a discussion at last night’s meeting of Kilcullen Community Action, which organises the Awards, it was agreed to move it from Friday to Thursday night, to facilitate attendance by more members of the public.

This year the nominations for the Awards will be managed by an independent panel drawn from the community. Nominations can be emailed to, or handed to any member of Kilcullen Community Action.

Ray Kelly suggested that more emphasis should be placed on the fact that it is a public event, to encourage more people to come.

In addition to the Awards celebration and appreciation of individuals and groups which add to the quality of community life in Kilcullen, it is also the occasion for the presentation of local Tidy Towns awards.

Local estates are being circulated in the coming week with forms to note improvements they may have made to their areas during the past year, to assist in the judging of this aspect.
