Has someone you know gone above and beyond for the community? Have they done something AMAZING & you feel they should be recognized for their achievement? Then why not nominate your local hero for this year’s Amersham Citizen of the Year Awards.

Town Mayor, Cllr. Caroline Jones, would like to invite you to nominate the unsung heroes in the community for a Council Citizen of the Year Award, which recognizes the people who do so much for our community. Nominations are sought in five categories this year – Citizen of the Year, Business of the Year, Team of the Year, Environmentalist Award and the Young Citizen of the Year.

We are also seeking nominations for The Martin Phillips Award for Community Engagement. Grants of up to £250 are available to charities, community groups and not-for-profit organisations in recognition of their work in the community. The Martin Phillips Award for Community Engagement was established in 2017 in memory of Councillor Martin Phillips who championed community work in Amersham. For further information on this award please visit our website or contact the Town Council Office.
