Towcester Town Mayor's
Citizen of the Year Award 2020/21

Do you know any unsung heroes whose praises you'd like to sing? The Mayor would like your help in finding people who have given up their own time to make an outstanding contribution to the life of Towcester and who add significantly to the quality of life of those they help. They may deserve recognition for their supreme effort, strength, bravery or achievement.

For example, perhaps they've made their mark working with a voluntary organisation or through some other community activity, paid or unpaid. Have they achieved something particularly noteworthy within the town or enhanced the reputation of the town? Maybe they've made a significant contribution to the conservation or protection of the natural environment or dedicated to providing a loving and supportive family life to a child or children who do not live with their birth family. All achievements will be considered.

If this sounds like someone you know, then now's the time to put them forward for a Mayor's Award.

Closing date for entries is Sunday 28th February 2021.

Those who are short-listed will be contacted by 26th March 2021 and will be asked if they wish to attend the Annual Meeting of the Town Council on 10th May 2020 at which successful nominees will be presented with their award.

Get nominating!

We require this information so we can contact the nominee to request their attendance at the Annual Meeting of the Town Council should they be lucky enough to win.

For junior entries, this should be a parent or carer's telephone number.

Please tell us clearly what your nominee has done that makes them stand out against others. Provide as much information as possible. Too little information makes it hard to judge. We are looking for outstanding service to others, paid or unpaid or significant achievements. You should include details of what the person you are nominating does, why you think that they should receive an award, how you know them and the work they do.

You can download a PDF version of the nomination form for completing offline or printing to complete by hand.

Please note: The person you nominate does not have to live in Towcester. It may be that they work here, come to the town to do voluntary work, or have lived here in the past and are nominated for the contribution they made to town life at that time. There will be no posthumous awards.

It is regretted that individual nominations cannot be discussed. The Mayor will review all nominations and will carefully consider who should receive awards. The Mayor, the Council or representatives of the Council will not enter into discussions on the Mayor's decisions. The Mayor's decision is final.
