Every year, the Chairman’s Awards are given to recognise people, businesses or organisations within the East Riding of Yorkshire who have gone above and beyond to serve the community and who have made a significant difference to enhancing their local community and the social well being of the area.

Chairman's Award Categories

There are four Chairman’s Awards each with two categories:

  1. built heritage – celebrates private homes, new builds or business premises that have been sympathetically renovated and/or restored (single, new dwellings, conversions and minor works category and commercial development and major schemes category)
  2. business – recognises businesses that have helped the economy flourish (businesses with under 50 employees category and businesses with over 51 employees category)
  3. community – recognises groups and individuals for the contribution to improving lives of those living in the East Riding with a non-commercial project (group category and individual category)
  4. sport – celebrates local talent and commitment to sports clubs and activities (outstanding team category and talented performer category).

I am sure there will be many individuals, communities, businesses, building projects and sporting achievements that deserve some recognition for making the East Riding a good place to be.
