DO you know someone who does something amazing for Thatcham’s community?
If so, nominations for the Thatcham Town Council Civic Awards 2019 are now open.
The awards are presented to people or groups in recognition of the work they do for the benefit of the town. Each year a maximum of three gold awards are presented.
This year’s presentations will be made by the mayor of Thatcham at the annual town meeting on Monday, March 11.
Previous winners have included Jane Wells, who, as an active member of the Spring Charity Fundraisers, which helped raise more than £100,000 in 10 years for local organisations, was the inspiration behind Thatcham Family Fun Day with the Junior Fun Run.
Headteacher of Kennet School for 29 years, Paul Dick, received an award last year for having served the school and wider community in a range of voluntary roles.
All nominations will be carefully considered and forms are available at www.thatchamtowncouncil.gov.uk or by calling the town council on (01635) 863592.
Nominations must be submitted for consideration to the town council offices in Brownsfield Road by noon on Wednesday, February 6.
