  Our annual awards — send us your nominations
NOMINATIONS are invited for the NMTF’s annual awards — the John Carter/ Harry Cross Memorial Cup, the Market Manager of the Year, and the NMTF/Harry Cross Student Grant.
The Memorial Cup will go to anyone judged to have done the most for market traders over and above the normal call of duty.
Anyone involved in the markets industry can be nominated (with the exception of Executive Board members).
If you know someone you believe is worthy of the honour,
send details, including a brief summary of what he or she has done, to the NMTF at Hampton House to arrive no later than March 23 2020.
The Dennis Williams Memorial Trophy for Market Manager of the Year is named after an NMTF Past President and Honorary Life Member who died in November 2009.
Officers nominated need not be the market manager — superintendents, supervisors, inspectors — indeed anyone in a day-to-day managerial role can be nominated.
So do you know an officer
who goes that extra mile, perhaps beyond the call of duty?
If so, all you have to do is tell us, in no more than 200 words, why you think that person deserves the award.
Entries can be sent via email to or by post to the Publicity Department, NMTF, Hampton House, Hawshaw Lane, Hoyland, Barnsley, S74 0HA.
Please do not forget to include your name, the nominee’s name and title, the market on which he or she works and your contact details.
The deadline is March 23 2020.
The 2020 NMTF/Harry Cross Student Grant is available to the son or daughter of a member of the NMTF who has completed one term or semester at a British University.
The closing date for applications is April 14 2020.
While the grant is not large it is sufficient to purchase books or equipment.
