Lord Mayor Turner said: “I hope people from all walks of life and backgrounds get involved this year: “Over the past eleven months as Lord Mayor of Armagh City and District, I’ve had the privilege of meeting hundreds of local people. The one thing I’ve been consistently impressed with is the sheer number of people who give their own time and energy to help others without seeking any real reward.

If there’s someone you know who has supported community activities, created job opportunities or promoted environmental, educational, sporting or cultural projects in your community please put their names forward for the Lord Mayor’s Awards.”
