About Community Stars


Our city is full of amazing people that give up their free time to help others in their local communities. NET's Community Stars project gives us a way of celebrating that. Our communities cannot thrive without the people who volunteer or otherwise give their time to help others, and this unpaid support too often goes unrecognised.


NET’s Community Stars 2017 will celebrate the voluntary and unpaid contribution many people make across the city by giving the general public the opportunity to nominate individuals that they feel have made a difference.


The ultimate accolade is that the NET Community Star for 2017 will have a tram named after them for a year.

Nominate your Community Star


Community Stars cannot be celebrated without your nominations. Do you know someone you believe to be a Community Star, who now deserves greater recognition?


Nominations are now closed


Nominations opened in November 2016, and closed on 30 September 2017.



What happens next?


Once the nominations close on 30 September a panel of volunteers and partners will get together to decide on the category winners. The category winners will then go through a final panel convened by our main sponsor, NET, to decide which person will have a tram named after them for a year.



The Celebration


All of the nominees, nominators and partner organisations will be invited to the 'Best In Nottingham' awards ceremony taking place on Monday 6 November 2017 at the Royal Albert Hall.


The event will celebrate the fantastic achievements of people in Nottingham who give of themselves to help others. The NET Community Star 2017 will be named at this celebration event.


The event is sponsored by Big Lottery Celebrate Programme.


Watch this space for a full update on the awards, and a big congratulations to all of our nominees!
