There are only a few days left in which you can nominate your local neighbourhood watch or favourite watch member for a Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) Award.

Nominations for the second annual awards close on Friday.

Nearly 200 nominations have already been received, says Hylton Mitchell, chairperson of the NHW Awards steering committee, and they are still coming in.

Last year a total of 122 entries were received from neighbourhood watches all over the Peninsula.

The awards highlight the incredible volunteer work being done by the more than 19 000 local NHW members who often, at great personal cost, do this community service without favour or reward.

It aims to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work and dedication that goes into providing a vital community service that often goes unrewarded.

Capetonians can nominate their local neighbourhood watch or favourite watch members in the following categories:

. NHW Member of the Year

. NHW of the Year

. Above and Beyond

. Safe City

. Innovation

. Partnership Working

. Community Cohesion

Seven humorous awards will also be handed out at the awards ceremony on 25 November, including the 007 Award, Mr Gadget, Night Rider, Thelma and Louise, Rocky, Starsky & Hutch and the A-Team (a group award).

The NHW Awards are held in conjunction with the City of Cape Town’s safety and security directorate and its partners, including the Department of Community Safety.

People’s Post is the media partner.

The awards will be judged by a committee that comprises a mix of stakeholders with a keen understanding of the criteria in awarding an official NHW Award.V To nominate someone or for more information visit www.nhwawards.co.za.
