Volunteer Of The Year

This year at our AGM (5th October; put it in your diaries now!) we will be awarding the first ever Dean Court Volunteer Of The Year!


We want to celebrate the great and amazing people that are found all over Dean Court, so if you know someone great and amazing who selflessly gives up their time to help others for free, then please nominate them! They might be someone who helps listen to readers in a school, or who visits folk who can’t easily leave their homes. It might be someone you know who’s involved with a voluntary organisation like the Scouts or Guides, or there might be someone who just goes out of their way to help others whenever they get a chance.

The only essential feature is that the person must live in Dean Court (as defined by this map). Feel free to nominate friends, neighbours, your child’s brownie leader, etc.. You don’t have to tell them you’re nominating them but we’ll let you know if they’re shortlisted so you can make sure they come along! Please write us a short blurb about what makes them the Dean Court Volunteer of the Year and send it to us at deancourtcc@gmail.com. If writing’s not your thing, then send us the name of the person you’d like to nominate and your phone number so that we can ring you up and talk to you about them instead. The entries will be judged by a panel from the Community Association Management Team and the closing date is Sunday 28th September.

In summary:

  • They must live in Dean Court
  • Any voluntary activity counts
  • Tell us why they’re great! at deancourtcc@gmail.com
  • Closing date 28th Sept.


We look forwards to being deluged with e-mails about all the great people in Dean Court!
