Time running out to nominate a local legend

Porirua City Council

Do you know someone who deserves to be honoured for the work they do in the community? Nominate them for a Porirua Civic Award!

Nominations for the awards close this week, Friday 12 April. Running in the city since 1993, they recognise people who have contributed to Porirua with their leadership, inspiration or commitment, often behind the scenes and out of the public eye.

Porirua Mayor Anita Baker says our city is full of residents giving up their own time for their neighbourhood, suburb or the city as a whole. These awards are a way to put worthy recipients in lights – even if it’s just for one night.

Past recipients have been recognised for things like maintaining a walkway near their home, helping with elderly care, supporting their local church, and volunteering their time and energy with a sports group or club.

Search ‘civic awards’ on our website for a nomination form.

But for some, jury service can be a huge disruption and a financial burden. Do you think changes could be made to our jury service system to address these challenges?
