Wychavon is a great place to live and work and one of our best assets is our residents. There are a huge number of individuals, and groups working voluntarily week after week, helping to run clubs and projects which make a real difference to our communities. To show this, every year we ask members of the community to nominate people who they think have:

  • Gone the extra mile in supporting their community.
  • Given their own time for the benefit of the people living in their town or village.
  • Helped make their town or village a better place to live.
