  • Bovey Tracey Community 2022 Awards - Nominations now being Invited image 1


Bovey Tracey Town Council’s annual Community Awards aim to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of people in Bovey Tracey and Heathfield that might otherwise go unrecognised.                             

This year the council has decided to run with three Awards: Community Champion 2022 Award, Young Citizen of the Year 2022 Award, and Environmental Champion 2022 Award. The Council is seeking nominations for persons in each of these categories that have made a significant difference for others in our community over  the past difficult year. If you know such a candidate, why not nominate them for the appropriate award?

Each Award is open to residents, workers and volunteers living or working in the Parish of Bovey Tracey, which includes Heathfield.

Nominations may be submitted by residents, persons working in the Parish, voluntary groups, visitors, or customers who have a god experience of the nominee’s activities for the Parish.
