Mayor of Winchester’s Community Award 2024

Closed 18 Feb 2024

Opened 3 Jan 2024


It is with great pleasure that the Mayor of Winchester, Cllr Angela Clear, launches the annual Mayor of Winchester’s Community Awards. 

The Mayor of Winchester’s Community Award recognises and celebrates the organisations and individuals who have given outstanding service to the people of Winchester District. 

The aim of these awards is to celebrate the selfless activity that brightens the lives of many residents, and makes the District a wonderful place in which to live.

The Mayor invites your nominations, and seeks to ensure that the Awards reflect the full range of community support from all corners of the Winchester District.

Who can be nominated?

As in previous years, the emphasis is firmly on voluntary action.  However, there is also scope to pay tribute to those who routinely go above and beyond the call of duty in the course of their paid employment. 

Nominees can be:

  • Any age;
  • Volunteering or working in any area of life, except causes that do not respect equalities legislation, or that promote extremism or otherwise conflict with established Council policies and duties.

Nominees must:

  • Live in the Winchester District (or, in the case of organisations, deliver a substantial part of their services to residents of the District) and, in the case of children, attend school or youth groups within the District.

How to nominate

Anyone can nominate an individual or an organisation, and self-nomination is permitted. The Mayor particularly seeks the assistance of Parish and Town Councils, City Councillors, schools and youth groups and others in public life who are well-placed to see such work at first hand and throw a light on the – often unassuming – volunteers who do so much for our community.

There are two categories:

1        Individuals (any age);

2        Organisations.

Please note:

  • Citations should be limited to 100 words, which will be printed verbatim on the reverse of the certificate.
  • Local media coverage is anticipated for the awards. Please therefore ensure that your nominee is content to be nominated before submitting the citation.
  • The closing date for nominations is 18th February 2024.

All nominees will receive a certificate of appreciation signed by the Mayor, together with a pin badge.

Nominees will be contacted by the Mayor’s Secretary and either sent their award, or invited to attend an event to receive it. Details will be announced in the coming weeks. Individuals / organisations making the nominations will also be informed. 

Awards are made wholly at the discretion of the judging panel.  The awards are discretionary and there is no right of appeal.
