Search is for on for Bradford's top tenants

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: TOP HONOURS: Last year’s Incommunities star tenants TOP HONOURS: Last year’s Incommunities star tenants

The annual search has begun to find Bradford’s super tenants who improve lives and the neighbourhoods where they live.

Incommunities 2014 star awards will recognise a wide range of talents, seeking both those who play an active role in making their communities a better place and people with fresh ideas for the future.

Incommunities’ assistant chief executive for Neighbourhood Services, Adrienne Reid, said: “Our 2014 Star Awards promise to be bigger and better than ever. These awards are all about celebrating our caring and talented tenants who work so hard to improve the lives of others and their neighbourhoods.

“We are particularly keen to see lots of great entries from our younger customers with two award categories aimed at celebrating the contribution they make to brightening up life in their communities.”

A ceremony is planned for September at the Hilton Hotel in Bradford. Jonathan Moseley, an award-winning floral designer currently a judge on the BBC 2 show The Big Allotment Challenge, and Look North presenter Harry Gration will be guests.

The social housing landlord is looking for nominations in seven categories. They include the ‘makeover’ category, which is for those who have breathed new life into their home, garden or community area, which should be submitted with before and after photographs.

The ‘individual garden/display’ category will recognise the green fingered work of one person, while the ‘communal garden’ award will celebrate a group effort for gardening outside a sheltered housing scheme or flats complex.

The ‘kids corner’ is for the under 16s who grow their own vegetables, plant flowers or get involved in other clean-up work.

All entries to those categories should include a photograph to illustrate the nomination.

Meanwhile, other categories will cover the best ‘rising star’ to recognise tenants aged under 21 who have succeeded in overcoming personal barriers or have made special efforts to help others in their community.

The ‘star team or employee’ award will focus on either a team of colleagues or individual, employed by Incommunities, who have made a positive difference to other people’s lives. Those wanting to make nomination can e-mail starawards@incommunities.co.uk, collect a form from the organisation’s offices, call (01274) 254104 or visit this story on the T&A website for a link to a nomination page.

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, July 18.

Also how much are these guests being paid to judge and handout prizes?
Would be interesting to see some figures from this organisation: how much money and resources are spent on these resident groups and how badly performing residents groups are treated. After all the monies spend are from the people paying the rent; the real owners of this privatised public housing division.

Also be interesting to learn what the executives earn and what are their pension playoffs as after all this was a council run body belonging to the people of Bradford.

I'd like to nominate my neighbour, He's a star, always there when you need him, no matter what time of day. He offers generous credit terms, I can even pay him back by doing a few jobs for him, not a problem.

He never blocks my drive with his Audi Q7 either, he's a considerate parker.

He's very popular in this area, he's so many friends and acquaintances who
he never turns away, no matter what time of day or night - if you have a problem he can give you something to help it go away, no problem.

Definitely a pillar of the community. the only time he doesn't seem to be available is Friday afternoons, seems he has something big on every Friday afternoon.
