We would like to say a special thank you to Mr John Vine who attended on behalf of IMERYS to present the awards to all those who were recognised for what they do within our community.

Thank you to all our sponsors IMERYS, Suez, Southwest Sweepers and Tony Lewis Roofing for helping to make these awards possible.  Most importantly we would like to thank those who continue to make a difference within our community on a daily basis without seeking praise or reward.

The Good Citizen Awards will take place again next year so we as a community can continue to acknowledge our unsung heroes or those who would otherwise go unrecognised. If you know of anybody that you feel is your unsung hero who goes above and beyond for our community keep your eyes open for the 2020 launch of the awards, nominations will be invited from September  this year.
