Good Citizen and Young Achiever

Application Form


Horsforth Town Council knows that it is important to recognise the hard work and successes of local people making a difference for Horsforth. Good citizens might be volunteers or community workers going that extra mile and young achievers might be excellent students or inspirational carers. Previous winners include dancers, the citizen who brought about the Neighbourhood Plan for Horsforth, the Horsforth Litter Pickers who keep Horsforth clean despite the antisocial behaviour of a minority who dump their rubbish instead of disposing of it properly, and a resident working hard to raise funds for dementia care.

Each year we acknowledge and highlight these achievements through the Good Citizen and Young Achiever Awards – local people nominated by local people. The Town Council welcomes nominations for anyone living in the Horsforth area.

The winner will be selected by the Community and Environment Committee and then presented with a recognition certificate at the Christmas Light Switch on the first Saturday of December 2023.

The deadline for the next round is 13th October 2023.

We look forward to receiving your applications!
