Background

  • The Wychavon Bursary was originally started by Wychavon District Council in 1993 - to recognise the 40th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne and the service she has given to the nation since then.
  • In 2013 the award was refreshed in accordance with The Queens Diamond Jubilee and all Parish and Town Councils had the opportunity to take part. We have 29 contributors in the refreshed scheme.  The name was also changed from Wychavon Bursary to Wychavon Diamond Jubilee Community Recognition Awards.
  • Each year we write to the Town and Parish Councils who contribute to the scheme and they are invited to nominate one, or more people, who they think have made a real difference to the community. 
  • A judging panel meet to select a winner from the nominations submitted and a prize is awarded to an individual or group who has given exceptional service to others and the aim of the fund is to help them continue with the positive work. 
  • As well as a cheque for £200, the Winner of the first prize also receives a trophy which shall remain in their custody until the following year 
  • Runners up 2nd and 3rd place also receive awards of £100 and £50 respectively
  • Each nominee receives a Certificate of Commendation.
  • We received 13 nominations this year – a whole variety of expertise and skills, generous acts of kindness and voluntary time given. It was a tough decision but wonderful to see that we have so many upstanding members in the District of Wychavon.
