Community Awards launched to honour great and good of Crawley


Crawley Borough Council along with the Hawth Theatre and the Crawley Observer are delighted to announce the launch of the inaugural Crawley Community Awards.

The Crawley Community Awards will recognise and reward those special people in our community who give their time, effort and skills, going above and beyond expectations.

Many work tirelessly for the benefit of others and often expect or receive little or no recognition for their efforts.

The Crawley Community Awards aims to change that.

Nominations are welcome for individuals or groups who live, work or volunteer within the Crawley Borough.

People can be nominated in multiple categories and individuals can make as many nominations as they wish.

We all know groups or individuals who deserve to be recognised and rewarded for all they do to make our community a better place.

This is your opportunity to take a few minutes to let them know that they’re appreciated.

The Awards will culminate in a glittering Awards Presentation Evening at the Hawth Theatre on Saturday March 19. The audience will me made up from shortlisted nominees and their friends and family; those who made nominations; event supporters and sponsors and VIP guests.

Winners will be presented with a trophy and framed certificate and we will produce an eight page picture special to be published with the Crawley Observer on Wednesday March 23.

The event is by invitation only and tickets are free of charge.

Nominations can be made online through
