Mayor Cllr Roger Trigg said: “The response to this year’s award scheme has was once again been positive and the community judging panel had a real challenge when it met to decide the winners. The range of achievements and work that takes place in the Borough is truly astonishing.”

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to make a nomination. For all those who weren’t selected for a prize, may I extend my genuine thanks for your contribution to life in our borough.

“My sincerest thanks also go to the sponsors of the awards, Mears and the University of Hertfordshire whose support for the Civic Awards is invaluable.”

This is the fourteenth year that Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, this year in partnership with the Mears Group, has hosted its civic awards. The Young Person Award was sponsored by the University of Hertfordshire for anyone under the age of 21.
