The Mayoral Awards are given out to recognise community heroes and brilliant businesses. The 2018 awards are now open for nominations! The deadline for entries is the 9th March.
The People's Award
This award is given to people who have made a positive difference to the lives and well-being of Chesham people, who have supported charitable or voluntary work in the town, who have volunteered for the Town Council, or who have demonstrated outstanding citizenship.
In 2017, the Award was won by Paul Jennings for his tireless work to protect and improve Chesham's environment, particularly our rare chalk stream habitat of the River Chess. The £150 prize money was donated to the Chesham Community Orchard.
The Business Award
This award, sponsored by Chiltern Chamber, is open to those businesses and retail outlets in town who have contributed to the community, excelled in their business or provided excellent customer service. In 2017, the prize was won jointly by KCS Ltd for its leading work on Christmas in Chesham and Domesco for its years of service to the High Street. Both businesses received a specially engraved trophy.
