Bovey Tracey Community Award - 2021

Added: 08 February 2021

At its Full Council meeting held on Monday 25th January, Bovey Tracey Town Council discussed whether it should continue with its Community Awards this year in the light of the circumstances presented by the pandemic.

It was recognised that lockdown and social distancing would make it extremely difficult if not impossible to have the normal nomination process for a series of six Award categories, and to hold the annual event for winners and other nominees as is normally done at the March Annual Town Meeting.

However, it was recognised that there are many people that have made extraordinary efforts for the community over the past year, particularly relating to the challenges presented by Covid-19.

On this basis, Town Mayor Cllr Sheila Brooke and Awards Lead Cllr Tony Allen proposed that the council should this year set up a special award of “Bovey Tracey Community Champion 2021”, which the council unanimously agreed to.

Nominations can be individuals (of any age), voluntary groups or businesses that have made such unselfish and highly valued contributions of their time to help those in need. A panel of councillors and recognised community leaders will select the winner of the Award.

Residents, voluntary group colleagues, visitors or customers with a good experience or knowledge of the nominee’s activities are invited to make the nominations, which will be on-line only. The nomination form can be accessed from the council’s website https://www.boveytracey.gov.uk/Community-Award/  Those without their own IT should ask someone they know to help them put in their nomination.

Nominations can be submitted from Monday 1st February to Friday 5th March. The winner will be announced at the Annual Town Meeting to be held remotely on 31st March 2021, details of which will be published in due course.

In addition, as he has been unable to attend any Town events in 2020, it was also decided to invite the current Honorary Representative of the Lord of the Manor of Bovey Tracey (Colin Back, Chair of the New Park Community  Association) to remain in post for a further year, which Colin has been pleased to accept.
