Good Citizen's Award

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council annually recognise the many individuals who freely give their time, energy and skills to help others within the borough.

A panel of councillors adjudicate on all the nominations received during the year and a ceremony takes place in April when the Mayor presents the award winners with a framed certificate.

Definition of a good citizen

This Award acknowledges the work undertaken by the Nominee for the good of the Community.  A "Good Citizen" is one who undertakes selfless acts for the good of the community without financial motive.  This includes, for example, acting as a volunteer carer, friend to those who are less fortunate, volunteer worker or fundraiser.

Example: - All the hard work the nominee has shown (day and night) in caring for an elderly neighbour who lives opposite, together with all the time she puts into helping the Heart Foundation.

To see everyone who has received the award since it was introduced please view the full list of award winners.
