Marsh civic awards

The Marsh Civic Awards are an annual award to recognise an "outstanding contribution to the civic movement" by an individual and a group. The awards are supported by the Marsh Christian Trust.

The Marsh Civic Awards for 2017 will be awarded at the Civic Voice Annual Convention in Wakefield on 20/21 October. More information here about the convention.

This is your chance to recognise the “outstanding contribution” made by a group or an individual within the civic movement. We all know someone who has gone the extra mile on a project within our civic groups, or a group who has continued to achieve fantastic results. This is the time to give them that recognition. Anyone can make a nomination so please submit yours before the end of September. The winning civic society will receive £1,000 and the winning volunteer £500 plus framed certificates.

Nominations will be shortlisted before a decision is made by the Marsh Christian Trust and announced at the October AGM..
