Mayor's Roll of Honour
Each month Cllr Soane and his deputy mayor Cllr Malcolm Richards will select worthy winners from those people nominated by members of the public. There will be children’s and adults’ categories and each winner will receive a lapel badge and scroll to mark their achievements.
Any borough resident can be nominated for an award. To nominate somebody, all you have to do is email the mayor’s office at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations (which can only be made by Wokingham borough residents) should be no longer than 200 words and should set out why the nominee should be considered for the award. For the children’s awards, outstanding achievements such as in sport or arts will be considered.
The awards will be given out monthly and the first awards will be presented at September’s full council.
