DO you know a worthy Buckinghamshire resident who would appreciate a pair of tickets to the Olympic or Paralympic Games?

If so, here is a chance to put their name forward.

Bucks County Council has been given 100 pairs of tickets to rowing and canoe sprint events at Dorney Lake as well as several pairs of tickets to the opening and closing ceremonies.

The council is offering residents in the county a chance to win these highly sought-after tickets and wants to make sure the tickets go to the most deserving people, those who demonstrate the Olympic and Paralympic values of courage, determination, inspiration, equality, respect, friendship and excellence.

A nomination form is available from the Bucks County Council website, from here or from the Advertiser and Review office in Buckingham early next week.

The form also asks if the nominee has had a positive impact on others around them and what winning tickets would mean to them.

Full competition rules are also available from the Bucks County Council website.

The nomination must be no longer than 400 words and must include the nominee’s signature, or parent or guardian’s signature, if the nominee is under 16.

The form must be sent to The Bucks CC 2012 Programme Team, Old County Hall, Walton Street, Aylesbury, HP20 1UA.

Nominations can be made for anyone or by anyone living in Buckinghamshire.

Forms must be received by the county council before March 31.
