The Town Council Civic Award is presented annually to a member of the public who, in the opinion of the council, have made a significant contribution to the town and the parish. This could be through a combination of a number of factors involving the promotion of the town, enhancing its reputation, initiatives to improve quality of life for residents or a sustained contribution to a particular issue, which has wide-reaching benefits for Ashby de la Zouch.
The Town Council Civic Award was first presented in 1979 but the last award was in 2006. The Town Council decided to re-instate the Civic Award in 2011 to recognise those “who have given service of great benefit to the community” and is presented by the Town Council on behalf of the people of Ashby de la Zouch.
Nominations for the award are made by members of the public and a decision is made by the Town Council.
