Civic Awards

Nominations are now open for the prestigious Welwyn Hatfield Civic Awards which celebrate the extraordinary commitment and inspirational achievements of local people.

Winners of the borough's highest accolade are presented with a personalised trophy, a certificate and a cheque for £250.  The recipients' names are also entered into an official Civic Awards book where their achievement is recorded for posterity.

There are also two special categories -- the Community Award, sponsored by Mears, and the Young Person's Award for those under the age of 21, sponsored by the University of Hertfordshire.

The deadline for all nominations is Friday 17 January 2020.

Up to five winners will be selected by the judging panel which is chaired by the Mayor of Welwyn Hatfield, Councillor Roger Trigg.

The awards will be presented at a special ceremony during the Annual Council Meeting and Reception in May 2020.

Mayor of Welwyn Hatfield, Councillor Trigg, said:

The Civic Awards are a fantastic opportunity to thank some of the unsung heroes who, through their selfless dedication to our community through their jobs or as volunteers, make Welwyn Hatfield a better place to live and work in.

It's easy to nominate someone for an award and a great way to show your appreciation for their hard work and dedication.
