Selwyn is full of amazing people and you all stepped up to the plate over the past few months as we dealt with COVID-19 and the lockdown. However there were some people and organisations that went that extra mile and we want you to let us know who they are so we can say thank you.

Selwyn District Council has teamed up with Te Taumutu Rūnanga and The Selwyn Times to launch Selwyn's Covid Heroes.

If you know of an individual, organisation, business, charity or essential service that made an outstanding contribution to your community over the past few months you can nominate them for a Selwyn's Covid Heroes certificate.

Perhaps a local shop pulled out all the stops to make sure they were there for you when you needed them, or a business went the extra mile to make sure you had what you needed during lockdown. Did a special teacher fill those Zoom lessons with fantastic content which helped your children laugh and learn or did somebody simply keep in contact with you to make sure you were okay?

This is your chance to say thank you to all those amazing people. Whether they are an international company or the young person from down your street who helped keep you safe by delivering your shopping. We want to know about them all.

There are no categories and no conditions, as long as you live in Selwyn you can nominate. They will ALL receive a certificate with their name on it thanking them for being such a great member of our community.

Once all the nominations are in we will select four nominations and invite them to a ceremony to have their certificate presented by Mayor Sam.

Nominations closed Monday 27 July.
