Locals are being urged to get in quick for tickets to the 2018 Selwyn Awards gala dinner.

Tickets for one of the highlights of the Selwyn social calendar have gone on sale for the dinner, which is being held at the Lincoln Event Centre on Saturday, August 4.

The Selwyn Awards are held every two years and recognise individuals and organisations for their outstanding work or inspirational achievements.

Selwyn Mayor, Sam Broughton, said the awards were an opportunity to celebrate local success and share our stories with one another.

“Selwyn is full of people doing great work, not for glory, but because they believe in what they are doing,” Mayor Broughton said.

“It’s good to recognise and highlight these achievements as models and examples of our development and leadership as a district.”

The award categories for this year are: Arts, Culture & Heritage, Community Service, Environmental, Innovation Excellence, Large Business, Small Business, Sport, Tourism and Young Achievers. Also for the first time, a People’s Choice Award will be presented.

All nominees will be celebrated, and the runners-up and winners in each category will be announced at the gala dinner. Tickets are available now through i-Ticket.
