Didcot Town Council John Eldridge Award

Two simple words that make a big difference

We’re asking people to nominate a Didcot based group or individual who has given their time and effort for the benefit of others, whether it is charity work, volunteering for a club or society or just being a good citizen and going that extra mile to help the people of Didcot.

Mrs Jean Eldridge donated the John Eldridge award following her husband’s death whilst serving as Deputy Mayor of Didcot in 1992. It was felt appropriate to found an award in his name to recognise voluntary work undertaken in Didcot.

If you would like to nominate somebody for the 2017/18 awards please submit nominations by using the attached nomination form.  

The only criteria for being nominated are that the individual or group must be based in Didcot or their work is for the benefit of the people of the town, and they can’t be paid for doing it.
