Celebrating Young Citizens

Young Citizen of the Year Awards 2018

On the 5th July Mayor Phil Page invited finalist candidates, parents, former winners and runners-up, sponsors, and Rotarians to the newly refurbished Civic Suite. Roger Timbrell expertly ‘emceed’, Peter Madeley sympathetically introduced the eight youngsters – plus Alfie Bough. He received a special award for his untiring efforts in support of charitable causes at his very young age. Mayor Page jovially awarded certificates to all eight finalists : Millie Betteridge, Carina Kaur Bougan, Taranveer Khangura (substituted today by her sister), Amias Perry, Gurpal Sahota, Alisha Kaur Swali. Anna Tabner and Richie Tanner. It was clear that picking a winner among this tireless and selfless group had been difficult. In fact the judges decided to choose two winners : Millie and Taranveer. They would each receive £100 plus £250 for their chosen causes.  For all present this was a heartening experience and we wish the best of luck to these admirable young people in their future lives.
