Good Neighbour Awards 2023

Nominate a neighbour to win £75 in vouchers!

Do you have a brilliant neighbour who regularly helps others in the community and makes a difference? If so, we’d love to hear from you! Whether they are always on hand when needed, provided support to others, or modestly bring joy to your neighbourhood, you can nominate them for CBH’s Good Neighbour Awards.

Good neighbours make a huge contribution to many people’s lives across Colchester. They help lots of people with their day to day lives often without thinking about the positive impact it has on them. Good neighbours can be found in every part of the city and are involved in many things from organising lunches, walking dogs, helping elderly neighbours, cooking meals, shopping and so much more. We want to highlight the fantastic contributions made by residents of all ages who have improved the lives of others and gone that extra mile. So, we are asking you to nominate someone in your community; nominated residents, have the chance to win £75 in vouchers.

Who can be nominated? Anyone can nominate a neighbour who has helped people within their community.

How can nominations be made? To place your nomination, please complete the relevant form on this page. If you would like an entry form posted to you instead, please email Resident Engagement at or call 07730580341.

The closing date for nominations is 3 September 2023.

The winners and runners-up will be presented with a certificate and shopping vouchers at our Annual General Meeting at The Innovation Centre, Colchester on the 4th of October 2023.
