Mayors awards

Mayor's awards to individuals

The Mayor makes an award at the end of his or her year, presented at Annual Council, to up to three people who he or she feels have made a contribution to life in Basingstoke but who would not necessarily otherwise be recognised for example by a Queen’s award.

Past awards have gone to people who have worked in areas such as organising sport for young people, theatre and arts activities, contributing to village life. The award is a badge supplied by Thomas Fattorini of Birmingham and can be worn on a ribbon at Civic occasions.

The awards are entirely at the discretion of the Mayor.
