WAVENEY District Council is seeking nominations for the Waveney round of the Suffolk Village of the Year Awards 2009. Representatives from villages across the district are being asked to consider if their village could compete for this year's title.

The awards are organised by the Suffolk Association of Local Councils, in partnership with county and district councils. This year, they are open to villages with up to 500 local government electors.

The closing date for entries is Friday, May 15 and judging is due to take place in June.

There is a prize of £200 for the winner of the Best Village in Waveney award, while the three villages with the highest scores will go forward to be judged for Suffolk Village of the Year, where the first prize is a cheque for £1,000, a Calor plaque, certificate and National Garden Gift Vouchers donated by SALC.

Ben Ablett, co-ordinator for the Waveney round, said: "This is an opportunity to celebrate all the hard work that goes on in local communities. I would encourage applications as we know there is wealth of activity and community spirit in our local villages and it is important this is recognised."

Applications can be made through www.waveney.gov.uk or by calling 01502 523184.
