About the event
Each year Bury St Edmunds Town Council marks St Edmund's Day by presenting civic awards for ‘Citizen of the Year’ and ‘Young Citizen of the Year’. Residents are nominated for the Awards for their very valuable, and often under-appreciated work they undertake in their community. The awards are given out at a lively celebration hosted by the Town Council.
The Bury St Edmunds Town Council, would like to encourage you to nominate a family member, friend, neighbour or colleague for the Town Council’s St Edmund’s Day Awards for the ‘Citizen of the Year’ and ‘Young Citizen of the Year’.
If you know anyone who has made a significant voluntary contribution to the life of the town and deserves some recognition, please nominate them. As long as the good work they do takes place in the Town, they are eligible. Additionally, the ‘Young Citizen of the Year’ will be awarded to an under-18 year old. The nominee can be anyone, a long term carer, or any young person who has performed an outstanding service for the benefit of the community of Bury St Edmunds.
The 2017 Awards Presentation evening was held on Tuesday 14 November. The worthy winners of 2017 award were:
Citizen of the Year - Mrs. Jane Frost
Young Citizen of the Year - Miss Phoebe Mousley-Hastings
In all cases the nominated person has to have made their contribution in the parish of Bury St Edmunds. The nominator need not be a local person.
