Entries for the Brockenhurst Citizen of 2019 have now closed (as of January 11). The Judges will form a ‘huddle to look at the entries.

This is a new event which celebrate the unsung heroes of our village, and those people who go the extra mile to make our lives and where we live a better place. And there have been several dozen entries which the judges will consider.

Award trophies will be given in three categories.

  • Brockenhurst Neighbour or Friend of the Year – given for an exceptional friendly and neighbourly act to an individual or family
  • Contribution to Brockenhurst Life – given for a wider exceptional contribution to the life or reputation of Brockenhurst
  • Young Person of Brockenhurst – given to any person under 18 best recognised for a generous, courageous, or selfless act

Winners will be announced at a presentation evening at the hall on February 7, 2020 at 6 o’clock – and anyone is welcome to attend. This event will be in the Exhibition Room, upstairs, and will take about an hour.

In the meantime so many thanks to those who helped – for example having entry forms to give out. The Citizen of Brockenhurst 2019 Award is sponsored by Meadens Skoda and supported as a media partner by the Lymington Times.
