Newbury Town Council is launching its annual civic awards to recognise the huge contribution volunteers make to the local community.
The Mayor of Newbury is launching three awards this year:
• The Newbury Town Civic Award, now in its 21st year;
• The Young Persons Civic Award, sponsored by Swift Group and;
• For the first time, the Newbury Town Business Civic Award.
Speaking ahead of the launch, Mayor of Newbury, Cllr David Fenn, said: “Often, little things like collecting prescriptions or cutting an elderly neighbour’s lawn are overlooked, but this can make a huge difference to someone’s life.”
Nomination forms are available via the Newbury Town Council website, where forms can now be electronically submitted. Paper copies are also available for collection from The Town Hall, or by telephoning the Council on 01635 35486.
The Mayor continued: “This year, I’m pleased to announce we’re also launching a new award aimed at Newbury’s businesses. We now need you to tell us who deserves to be recognised for making a significant contribution to our community.”
The closing date for nominations is Friday 9 March and the Mayor will present winners with their awards at the Annual Town meeting on the evening of Monday 19 March.
Newbury Town Council would like to thank Adrian Smith of the Swift Group for their continued support.
