Unsung heroes in Holt are to have their efforts recognised in a new “honours” scheme.
The town council has agreed to start an annual awards scheme, like the one which has been running at Cromer for many years.
It can be people who make major contributions to the life of individuals or community groups in the town, either through their work or voluntary help, said clerk Di Dann.
Nomination forms are being drawn up and the council would be looking for suggestions by the beginning of January.
The awards will be presented at the annual town meeting, which will also be given a presentation by the local Citizens Advice Bureau which is in need of volunteers.
Pressure is building for action to tackle road safety concerns at the Kelling Road and Cromer Road junction and lack of a roundabout in Edinburgh Road. Town councillors are asking for a meeting with highways officials to discuss what improvements at the two locations.
