Didcot Town Council Awards

"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.

Now in its second year we are asking people to nominate Didcot-based groups or individuals who have given their time and helped improve the environment of our town.

The Mayor, Cllr Anthony Dearlove will host the gala evening on Friday 18th October 2019, where we will have entertainment, canapes, welcome drinks and a finger buffet. All nominees will be invited to the evening where the winners will be announced.

All nominees will be issued with 2 free tickets for the event. Any remaining tickets will be available to purchase nearer the date of the event. Ticket sales will go to the Mayors charities.

On the evening we also hold the annual Allotment Awards, for those that work hard all year on their allotments. These awards are judged by the Outdoor Services Manager and Allotment Reps.

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 chosen and presented by Mrs Jean Eldridge.

If you would like to nominate somebody for the 2019 awards you can vote by using our online form (at the bottom of this page) or complete a paper form and return to the Council offices, Britwell Road, Didcot.

Closing date for nominations is 25th September 2019.

This event is by ticket only.
