Mayor Councillor Wayne Jones is delighted to annouce the winners of the 2017 Malmesbury Civic Awards as follows; 

Citizen of the Year - Ash Scott and Lisa Gore for their contribution to the community of Malmesbury.  Ash and Lisa were involved in the reinstatement of the Farmer/Artisan Market and actively set this up each week.  Their support for Malmesbury Town Team, Malmesbury Town Council and carnival activities has been greatly valued.  They work together for the benefit of our town and its residents without seeking any recognition and always with great humour.  

Young Citizen of the Year - Dan Baines is a Year 13 student at Malmesbury School who has been accepted to study at the Rambert School of Dance, who only offer 45 spaces a year and who draw more than 600 applications worldwide to this prestigious school.  Dan has worked with local primary schools delivering workshops and inspiring young dancers.   He also runs lunch time and after school break dancing clubs.  He is very generous with his time and mentors the younger dance students in the school. 

Organisation of the Year - Malmesbury Food Bank for their dedication, hard work, compassion and good humour.  This group of volunteers provide for a number of people in our town, who would otherwise face an even more difficult existence than they do now.

Many congratulations to the winners and all the nominees, who of course are also recognised for their support and hard work they provide to the local community.
