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.
Anybody in the UK can make a recommendation for a British national to receive an honour. This ensures that many people who are not in the public eye are recognised for their valuable service and contribution, perhaps to charity, to the emergency services, or to their industry or profession.
Honours recipients are announced twice a year, once in the New Year's Honours List, and once on The Queen's official birthday.
