Bridgwater Town Council will once again be sponsoring the ‘Bridgwater Youth Awards’ which will pay tribute to and recognise the work and achievements of young people in our community for the period 2019 to 2020. The awards will be presented by Town Mayor Cllr Tony Heywood at a gala event scheduled for Friday 24th April which will be organised by the members of the Bridgwater Youth Council, which consists of delegates from all 5 schools in Bridgwater within the age range 11-19.
Town Council Youth portfolio holder Cllr Julie Cordiner (left) said “Nominations are now open and anyone can nominate a young person from the Bridgwater area for one of the award by simply writing to the Town Council with their own name, the name of the person they are nominating and writing a short paragraph about what they have done to deserve the award. So if you have a nomination for a youth related award for 2020 please submit it in writing, by hand, by post or by email to YOUTH AWARDS 2020, Bridgwater Town Hall, High Street, Bridgwater TA63AS or email email@example.com. The deadline is 27th March 2020.”
The Youth Awards were the idea of former Mayor Cllr Diogo Rodrigues who held the original event in 2019 at the Town Hall.
