Vote for Pride award winner

Residents are being asked to choose their favourite council worker from a shortlist of four.

Paul Dunn, commissionaire at Wakefield Town and County halls, senior tourism officer Hazel Birdsall, business manager Mick McKigney and Susan Worrall, countryside ranger at Lofthouse Colliery Nature Park, have all been nominated for People’s Choice Award at Wakefield Council’s Pride Awards.

The award gives residents a chance to say thank you to council employees who go the extra mile, either through their job or within the community or for charity. The Pride Awards, which is funded through the council’s business partners and organisations, recognises the very best of what council employees do for the Wakefield district and its residents.
