  • Arts Recognition award
  • Sporting Hero award
  • Community Project award
  • Community Group award
  • Enabling Healthy Lives award
  • Lifetime Achievement award.

We rely on volunteers to make things happen, so it’s only right that they should be acknowledged for all the time that they have put in to making Wychavon a better place to live and work.”
