THE HUNT BEGINS FOR CITY'S BEST NEIGHBOUR; Good Neighbour Awards PRIZES WORTH Pounds 2,500 FOR THE PEOPLE WHO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR LIVES


THE search starts today to find neighbours in Coventry whose selfless acts make a difference to the lives of others.

A total prize fund of more than pounds 2,500 is on offer for those whose good deeds brighten up the city's communities.

The competition, organised by Whitefriars Housing Group and the Coventry Telegraph, follows the inaugural award last year which saw Jeff Cook, of Nickson Road, Tile Hill, walk away with the top prize.

His neighbour, Pauline Davies, entered him in recognition of his help following the death of her husband in 2003. Jeff and wife Pat help Pauline with her gardening, provide meals and take her out in their car.

Pauline claimed pounds 100 worth of high street vouchers for submitting the winning entry.

To be in with scooping the jackpot for your neighbour, you simply need to fill in the form here.

You can nominate someone who visits you, does odd jobs for you, puts on community and street events, or someone who simply brightens up your day.

This year's awards will see four neighbours shortlisted and each will receive pounds 500.

A panel of judges, including representatives from Coventry's neighbourhoods and the Chartered Institute of Housing, will choose an overall winner from the four to receive the title of The Ellen Emms Good Neighbour 2008, a prize of their choice up to the value of pounds 500, and special lunch in their honour and luxury transport to the event.

The top award is named for Ellen Emms MBE in recognition of her continuing work to improve Coventry's neighbourhoods.

Entry forms are available from Coventry's libraries and Whitefriars' offices and you can request a copy from goodneighbour@whitefriarshousing.co.uk or download one from the Coventry Telegraph website www.iccoventry.co.uk It's free to post your entry so pop the form in an envelope to Freepost, Whitefriars Communications Team. …
