Cricklade Community Awards
The Community Awards are held every year in Cricklade to honour those residents who have gone that extra mile. We know there are many people in Cricklade who deserve to be recognised for their hard work and, towards the end of each year, Cricklade Town Council invite you to submit nominations for three categories:
Young Person of the Year
Cricklade Community Award
Community Group of the Year
Councillors decide who are the most deserving of those nominated and the winners are announced, and presented with certificates, at the Annual Town Meeting held in April.
Congratulations to the 2022 winners:
Young Person of the Year - Caitlin Goodman
Cricklade Community Award - Linda Cantillon
Community Group of the Year - The Red Lion Charity Fund
The grazing of North Meadow.
The Hayward of The Manorial Court of the Hundred and Borough of Cricklade advises that there will be 71 cattle on North Meadow for the next few weeks and up to 20 horses until the end of the year. There are caution notices on every entrance to assist visitors. Grazing is a vital part of maintaining our National Nature Reserve. Hundreds of years of Lammas management (hay crop taken in July followed by aftermath grazing) is why North Meadow has such a unique and special biodiversity.
Cricklade Neighbourhood Plan Referendum Result.
A neighbourhood plan is designed to give some control to residents over land use in their area although it must be in conformity with Wiltshire Council policy ( The Core Strategy) and national legislation.
The Cricklade Neighbourhood Plan came into effect when it was passed by residents in a referendum held on 8th March 2018. In addition, it nrings a greater level of expenditure to be spent locally under the Community Infrastructure Levy charged on new development.
Cricklade Town Council are pleased to announce that the proposal was carried and the Declaration of Result is attached.
