Civic Awards – Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their good works in Burnham and Highbridge?

Cllr Lesley Millard, the Town Mayor, has today opened up the nomination period for receipt of nominations for this year’s Civic Awards.

Civic awards are presented to residents of Burnham and Highbridge who, through their outstanding service to the community, have made real and positive differences to life in our two towns.

This year the ceremony will be held on Wednesday 29th March 2023 and Cllr Millard would like to make sure people don’t miss out on the opportunity for their good works to be recognised. She said, “I am really looking forward to welcoming award winners to a special ceremony to be held in their honour this year. It is time to recognise those who work consistently for the benefit of our community’ “.

Nominations might be for those people who:

  • help out neighbours in need
  • coach a local sports team
  • volunteer at youth or community groups
  • organise local activities and community events
  • help in schools, libraries, and hubs
  • run cultural and social events

Last year we had lots of nominations, all celebrating the tireless support and dedication that people from our community give back into our community.

In order to allow the Council to carefully consider all nominations, the closing date for receipt of nominations is Friday 10th February 2023.

If you would like to nominate someone for a Civic Award, that person must:

  • Have provided services of an exceptional nature for a significant period of time
  • Have provided services, which have been of benefit to people within the parish; but
  • Not be nominated for providing a service that constitutes their usual activity as a business.

Please visit the town council website to refer to the criteria for nominations and complete the nomination form: https://burnham-highbridge-tc.gov.uk/forms/civic-awards-online-nomination-form-2023

There will be a further announcement once plans are confirmed with regards to this event for the awards presentation.
