Faith in Service


The awards applications are closed for the 2021 nominees and will open for the 2022 awards later in the year.


Make a Nomination


"Thank you." Two simple words that make a big difference. The Didcot Town Council Awards Evening is an event to say thank you to the people of Didcot who go that extra mile for the community.

All nominees and a guest will be invited to a gala evening, where we have welcome drinks, entertainment, and the presentation of the awards followed by a finger buffet.

We also give out Allotment Awards, for those that work hard all year on their allotments at the event.

The final award of the evening is the John Eldridge Award for Voluntary service. This award was donated by Mrs Jean Eldridge 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. This award is usually chosen and presented by Mrs Jean Eldridge but sadly Mrs Eldridge passed away so now a panel of judges will decide the winner.

If you would like to nominate somebody for the awards you can vote by using our online form below or complete a paper form also below and return to the Council offices, Britwell Road, Didcot.
