In place of the usual Freedom of the Town Award, HTC decided to do something a bit different this year, by asking residents to nominate their “Covid Community Champion”. This was to recognise someone they felt had gone the extra mile to support the community of Hungerford throughout the Covid pandemic. We were delighted that we received a number of nominations for individuals and groups within the town and we would like to thank those who took the time to send in their nominations.
All those who were nominated were invited to attend an event on Saturday 24th July at the Croft Field Centre where they were presented with an award. Mayor, Cllr Helen Simpson, addressed the gathering by saying “I am delighted to host the awards ceremony for the community-nominated Coronavirus champions. The pandemic definitely showcased how incredible our residents are and we are all here today to say thank you to the nominees and to celebrate your selfless acts of kindness and community support. I hope you are as proud of yourselves as the community is of your efforts. Huge congratulations to all of today’s awardees”.
Please see the attached document for details of all the champions.
