Melksham Town Council is delighted to announce that nominations for Melksham’s Civic Awards 2021 are now open.  This is the chance to sing the praises of an individual, business or organisation who you believe, through their efforts and achievements, has made a significant contribution to our community.  It is an opportunity to recognise and honour those who have gone above and beyond in trying to improve Melksham and the lives of those who live here.

There are four categories of award.  These are:

The Community Service Award

Made to any individual or organisation who, in the opinion of the awards committee, has improved the quality of life of Melksham’s residents.

The Enhancing Melksham Award

The Achievement Award (including sports)

Made to any team or individual who, in the opinion of the awards committee, has excelled within their particular field/activity (including sport), either by a significant improvement in their skills and/or personal achievement and development.  To qualify for this award a team must be Melksham-based or, in the case of an individual, be resident within Melksham.

The COVID-19 Community Hero(es) Award

Made to any individual volunteer or group of volunteers who, in the opinion of the awards committee, has/have gone above and beyond during the course of the coronavirus pandemic.  In doing so, this individual or group will have made a positive impact on the safety and wellbeing of Melksham’s residents in the most difficult of circumstances.
