During the Annual Town Gathering on Tuesday 18th April 2023 at 6.30pm, Trowbridge Town Council Annual Awards will be presented, giving us a chance to celebrate our community and show our appreciation.

We are asking you to nominate members of your community, those unsung hero’s – a group or person who has made our community a happier place. This could be someone who always goes that extra mile: a group that regularly gives up their spare time to benefit the local community: a school class that has gone green!  Give us a chance to recognise their achievements and celebrate them.

The awards are a celebration of the local community from the previous year and the work they have achieved.

We are looking for nominations for the following categories:

Please Note: Each award is open to be given to an individual as well as a club/group/organisation expect ‘Club of the Year’

‘Spirit Of Youth’ (Two age groups for this award – 13-18 years, and under-13s)
This award would be made in recognition of having been a positive role model for their peers, while at the same time having provided benefit to the community in general.

‘Public Sector Local Hero’
An award made in recognition of the recipient having gone the extra mile to help others and/or the local community.

‘Charity Fundraiser of The Year’
The award would not necessarily be made in light of how much money has been raised, but additionally how innovation and different techniques have been used in fund-raising efforts.

‘Community Champion’
That person or group who is recognised as having made an outstanding contribution to the local community.

‘Green Award’
For a contribution toward enhancing the town’s ‘green’ credentials, whether through recycling/litter campaigns or initiatives, or improvement of green areas within the town.

Sporting or leisure, the club that through its activities has made an ongoing and significant contribution to the town.
