Civic Awards 2022-2023
Congratulations to our winners:
The Community Group of the Year - Cricklade & District Community Association (C&CDA)
C&CDA are the group (now a registered charity) that saved Cricklade Leisure Centre from closure in 2007 and have run it ever since. The volunteer trustees and their staff have exercised their duties with a combination of imagination and financial prudence to maintain the facility for all residents. C&CDA have demonstrated voluntary community work at its best.
The Cricklade Community Award : Rob Aylward
Rob has been the chairman of Cricklade Youth Football Club for the past four years and under his leadership the club has grown to a membership of 130 local children. He puts his heart and soul into running the club, and goes above and beyond on numerous occasions. Supporting statements said " Rob is CYFC through and through" he's an inspiration", "he is dedicated in his commitment to giving the children opportunity to meet up have fun and make friends whilst learning to play football"
The Young Person of the Year : Joshua Ward
Joshua was nominated for his fund raising efforts completed in 2021 and 2022, but to many of his neighbours he deserves the award as he provides a bin service for his local older and disabled residents. "Joshua is a kind, polite, helpful young man, who is a real credit to his mum and step-dad".
Well done to all those who were nominated.
