If you know of anyone who deserves one of our Sunshine Awards, now is the time to tell us.

We are once again giving you, our Visitor readers, your say in the voting.

We want you to send us your nominations, in writing, by email, even by Facebook or Twitter.

However you do it, please let us know...who do you think should win a Sunshine Award?

We have four Sunshine Award categories where you, The Visitor readers, can have your say.

They are:


The Sunshine Unsung Hero award will be awarded to an individual who deserves recognition for their work in the Morecambe community. He or she could be a charity or community worker, a teacher, a group leader or anyone who sums up the term “unsung hero”.


The Sunshine Community award will be awarded to a community group. This could be an organisation, charity or similar. The winning group will have made a positive difference to the community of Morecambe.


The Sunshine Sport award will be given to an individual or a team who have excelled in the sporting arena. This could be a Morecambe sportsperson of any age, or a manager, trainer or coach, or a team.


The Sunshine Entertainment award will be given to an individual or group who has produced sterling work in the field of Morecambe entertainment, whether it’s in music, dance, performance arts, theatre, TV or comedy. The winner could be a performer, a teacher, an arts worker or anyone involved in entertainment who is connected to Morecambe, a town with a great tradition in the field.


We want you to send us your nominations in any, or all, of the reader categories.

There is no form to fill in and nominating couldn’t be easier. Just state clearly the category, the name of the person you’re nominating, and why.
