Every year, West Berkshire Council recognises exceptional individuals and groups who have
gone above and beyond to make a difference to their community.
The Community Champion Awards are our opportunity to recognise the very best of these
efforts and to say thank you for them. This year in particular we have an awful lot to be
grateful for as communities pull together through a challenging time.
These awards seek to recognise our unsung heroes in all their guises and I hope that you
can help us to tell people about the awards, and to encourage nominations. The calibre of
nominations is always high, and I look forward to reading them and learning more about the
wonderful work done across the district.

Cllr Clive Hooker
Chairman of West Berkshire Council
