The 2021 Mayoral Awards are now open for nominations - information and forms can be seen below. The deadline for nominations is the 29th March 2021.
The Mayoral Awards are given out to recognise community heroes and brilliant businesses. Each year, you can nominate someone who makes Chesham a better place, a top volunteering team that deserves some recognition, or a business excelling in its field. The winners are announced at the Annual Town Meeting each year. Due to COVID, there was no Town Meeting in 2020. There will be a meeting this year (most likely held online and viewable by the public), and we'll be announcing both the 2020 and 2021 winners at the same time, so there will be a double celebration!
