WINCHESTER University has launched a new community award to highlight the contribution of outstanding community organisations or individuals.

The University of Winchester Community Star Award is open to all organisations and individuals who share its commitment to serving the public good and reflect its values.

Prof Joy Carter, university Vice-Chancellor, said: “I’m delighted to launch the University of Winchester Community Star Award. The university is a values-driven institution with a strong commitment to the Hampshire community.

“I hope that the award will promote community engagement in Hampshire and the surrounding area. There are so many organisations and individuals doing commendable work in the community, and these awards are a wonderful way to highlight and reward their tireless commitment.”

Alongside this is the Vice-Chancellor’s Community Engagement Award which recognises and celebrates the work of students and staff from the university who have made an outstanding contribution to the community.

The awards will be presented at Winchester Cathedral in October during the university’s graduation ceremonies. The winner will receive a £300 donation to a charity of their choice.

Nominations can be made in reference to any of the university’s values and must refer to activity that has taken place within the past 12 months.

The University of Winchester Community Star Award and Vice-Chancellor’s Community Engagement Award are run in partnership with the Hampshire Chronicle, which will publish the award shortlists and details of the eventual award-winners.

There are six University of Winchester values: Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice, Diversity, Spirituality, Individuals Matter, and Creativity.

The closing date for nominations is June 30.

What marvellous malignancy!' Community driven' so that a select elite can extract as much life-blood from Winchester as an all-consuming omnipotent diabolical leech with Cheshire Cat grin. And the Chronicle dutifully lubricating the passage.Such diabolical fun! How about doing the community a favour and try housing the student masses outside the City centre or residential areas? How about paying for your own sports centre? Winchester University - a great plague on the city?
