Bassetlaw celebrates its Achievers

Local people who have shown exceptional commitment to helping and supporting their community were honoured at a special ceremony held in Retford Town Hall.

Nominees for a Bassetlaw District Council Achievers’ Awards range from residents who have dedicated their lives to helping their communities, working tirelessly for charities, personal achievements and sporting successes.

Whether it is through their occupation, voluntary or charity work, as an essential part of their community or through a sporting activity, their contribution is something that should be recognised and they are a credit to us all.

“Bassetlaw is proud to recognise its achievers and congratulates all nominees and award winners.”
