The Oak Tree Award

Recognise those people, groups and organisations who have gone above and beyond in supporting and strengthening our local community

On the 23rd March 2020 as part of the National Day of Reflection, an Oak Tree was planted in Barrow Park in partnership with CANDO FM and Barrow Borough Council.  This tree commemorates those we have lost during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

As it will grow it will symbolise the strength and roots of our local community.  And that is the theme of the Oak Tree Award.  This is a NEW award for 2021!

  • You can nominate anyone who has provided support to the community during the lockdown and the pandemic. 
  • Put forward people and groups who have strengthened our community with acts of kindness and courage. 
  • Say thank you to those who have drawn our community together through their actions and presence.
