Newbury Town Civic Awards 2023

Newbury Town Council are, once again, looking to celebrate achievements and honour volunteers by recognising those who make a difference in our community.

There has been a great deal of volunteering carried out over the past year in Newbury and we would love to hear about those who have made an impact on the town. Whether that be someone going above and beyond for a neighbour, running a community event, supporting someone in response to the Ukrainian refugee crisis or going out of their way to educate their peers on a community matter – we would love to hear from all who have made a positive influence in Newbury.

This year we have four award categories:

  • The Newbury Town Civic Award
    This person does not have to live within Newbury Town; however, their voluntary activities should be predominantly within Newbury Town or benefit the town.
  • The Newbury Town Young Persons Civic Award
    This person must be age 25 or under. They don’t have to live in Newbury Town; however, their voluntary activities should be predominantly within Newbury Town or for the benefit of the town.
  • The Newbury Twn Business Civic Award
    The Town Council wants to acknowledge the contributions made by the many businesses who are giving something back to the community in Newbury. This could be through employees volunteering for local causes, through fundraising or contributions, or by partnering with local charities and organisations. The business does not have to be located within Newbury Town; however, the contribution or volunteering activities should be predominantly within the town or for the benefit of the town.
  • The Newbury Town Environmental Contribution Civic Award
    The Town Council wants to acknowledge the contributions made by individuals and organisations whose volunteering impacts the local environment by helping to reduce CO2 emissions, or to reduce/recycle more waste, or to increase biodiversity. This could be through conservation projects, green initiatives, fundraising, or by awareness raising. The individuals or organisations do not have to be located within Newbury Town; however, their contribution or volunteering activities should be predominantly within Newbury Town or for the benefit of the town.
