Civic Awards 2016

This year five local people have received Civic Awards for their contributions to the community.

The annual Civic Awards are the city's highest recognition for voluntary service. Established in 1988, they highlight the efforts of those who give up their time to ensure community groups and organisations tick.

Our 2016 recipients have all made extraordinary contributions to the city and their voluntary work has touched the lives of countless people. Their work spans arts and culture, horticulture, sports, health, social housing, farming, and support for refugee and migrant communities.
