Horwich Civic Awards 2021

Horwich Town Council is asking for nominations from the public for its Civic Awards in 2021. Civic medals are awarded to individuals who have demonstrated at least twenty years’ service to Horwich in any field, or a combination of fields including sport, community and voluntary service, children and young people, arts, culture, entertainment, politics etc.

Christmas Tree

There are two recipients every two years and decisions are made by the Council’s Civic Awards Sub Committee and approved by full Council. They do not have to be residents of Horwich to qualify but must demonstrate long service in a voluntary capacity to the Parish.

Nominations will be accepted for individuals who have been nominated previously but who have not yet received an award. Civic medals are not awarded posthumously. Serving Councillors are not eligible and former Councillors must provide an undertaking that they will not stand again for election.

Successful nominees receive their awards from the Town Mayor either in the Council Chamber or at a place convenient for them, it is entirely their decision where they accept their award and who attends the presentation.

All nominations must be submitted via an official nomination form available from the Town Clerk or by download via the link below.

All nominations will be treated in the strictest confidence. Closing date for nominations is 22 January 2021.
