Saltash Town Council Civic Awards

Saltash Town Council Civic Award Recipients

The Civic Awards are held annually to celebrate and award achievements within the community and those who continually go the extra mile for the town. Nominations are normally open in January of each year. All nominations must be made on the nominations form.

The award categories are:

Contribution to the Community

This award recognises individuals or community and voluntary groups based in Saltash who have made a positive contribution to the local community. People who make an outstanding effort to bring the community together, improve the town of Saltash either environmentally or aesthetically, or those who go out of their way to help others, in their own time.

Youth Achievement

Awarded to an individual aged 18 or under who has made a significant, positive contribution to the town, demonstrating exceptional community spirit or for excellence in areas not normally recognised. This may be acts of bravery, kindness, caring for others or improving their community.

Lifetime Achievement

Recognising exceptional and continued commitment to the life of the community of Saltash over a considerable period of time. The award recognises a real commitment to others in the community, going over and above what would ordinarily be expected, through volunteering, community work, helping neighbours or carrying out exceptional deeds spanning a lifetime.

Youth Group Leader Award

Presented in recognition of inspirational and committed volunteer youth group leadership in the town.
