Nominations open for Civic Awards 2024

01 August 2023

If you know an individual who always goes above and beyond or a group that makes a positive difference in your community, then why not put them forward to be considered for a Civic Award?

Nominations are now open for the council’s Civic Awards for 2024 - anyone can nominate a resident, group, organisation or business within the city for an award, as long as the nominee meets the criteria for that award.

The award categories are:

• Young Person Award (18 and under)

• Lifetime Achievement Award

• Community Involvement Award

• Business Award

• Outstanding Commitment to the Environment Award

• Contribution to Art and Culture Award

• Contribution to Sport Award.

More information on each award, and nomination forms, can be found on Peterborough City Council’s website at: https://www.peterborough.gov.uk/council/civic-awards.

The forms are also available from the Civic Office - please ask for an officer at the Town Hall Reception in Bridge Street.

Nominations can be sent by e-mail to susan.proctor@peterborough.gov.uk or posted to:

Sue Proctor, Civic Office, Peterborough City Council, Town Hall, Peterborough, PE1 1HG.

Following the deadline date all the nominations will be passed to the council’s Constitution & Ethics Committee who will meet in November 2023 to draw up a shortlist of finalists and select the winners within each award category.

These winners of the Civic Awards will be announced at a Council Meeting and following this, the winners, their nominators and guests will then be invited to a special Presentation Evening, normally held in March.

Cllr Peter Hiller, Chair of the council’s Constitution & Ethics Committee, said: “The Civic Awards are a great way to celebrate those who make a positive contribution to Peterborough, but don’t always get the recognition they deserve.

“I would urge anyone who knows an individual or organisation which deserves an award to submit a nomination form before the deadline.”
