CIVIC AWARDS

Newbury Town Council introduced the Newbury Town Civic Award in 1997. More recently, the Young Persons Award, the Business Civic Award have been launched to run alongside the Civic Award. For 2020, we have introduced the Environmental Contribution Civic Award for someone who contributes to making Newbury a more environmentally friendly place to live. 

The awards have highlighted the importance of those who make a difference in our community and are presented to those who, in the opinion of a panel of judges, have made an exceptional contribution to Newbury.  

We want to hear who YOU think is so inspiring that they deserve to be recognised with a Civic Award.  

Please read all the criteria in the nomination forms below. You are welcome to nominate more than one person/organisation for each award.  

Nominations close Sunday 15th March 2020
