Cornwall to celebrate its women. Get nominating!

Nominations are being sought for the first ever Cornwall Women of Achievement Awards being held at the Eden Project on the 8th March, which will begin to recognise the inspirational unsung heroines of Cornwall.

Over the past few years great things have been achieved in all sectors in Cornwall and nominations are sought from the people of Cornwall to celebrate Cornwall's women in the following categories: Business, Agriculture, Food and Fishing, Education, Creative Industries, Community and Public Service, Young Woman, Sports and Leisure, Media and Communication and Health.

The woman that a nominee puts forward may be a work colleague, friend, relative, carer, teacher or someone who has made a positive impact on Cornwall, on individuals or on groups' lives in Cornwall. No matter who they are, the organisers of the awards would like to hear about them.

Sue Wolstenholme, organiser of the event said: "These awards seek to acknowledge and celebrate the women who with their drive, innovation and passion have achieved great things in their chosen field or gone the extra mile for others and for their community. The awards aren't being sexist, we want to hear from all the men who are inspired by the women in their workplaces, homes and communities who have made a positive impact on their lives."

Awards judge Carleen Kelemen, Director of the Objective One Partnership, said: "Women have a key role in the fabric of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, including many who are working to regenerate the region's economy. These awards will celebrate the talent, hard work and competitive edge that women are contributing to this region."

Nomination forms can be picked up from libraries or from Ashley Events on 01579 370991. Nomination forms can also be filled in online at www.thisiscornwall/womenofachievement.

Nominations can be received up until 20th February. The awards evening will take place at the Eden Project on 8th March. Tickets for the event including the gala dinner and further information is available from Rachael Clayton at Ashley Events.

For further information please contact Rachael Clayton on 01579 370991.
