Awards to Honour Shrewsbury’s Unsung Heroes

Awards to Honour Shrewsbury's Unsung Heroes

With a closing date of March 24, there’s still time to submit your nominations for the annual Mayor of Shrewsbury Awards to acknowledge those unsung heroes who have made an outstanding contribution to the town of Shrewsbury.

The Mayor is asking businesses, organisations and residents to provide recommendations for Shrewsbury’s annual civic awards, designed to feature those who have gone above and beyond for the benefit of the town.

Anyone can submit a nomination, or be nominated, and there are nine categories which aim to recognise organisations, groups, individuals and businesses whose achievements have benefitted the town. A panel of members and officers of the Town Council will judge the nominations, with the winners revealed at an Awards evening in the Walker Theatre at Theatre Severn on April 18.

The categories are:

Built Heritage Award

Business Award

Climate Emergency Award

Community Award

Courtesy Award

Environmental Award

Lifetime Achievement Award

Tourism Award

Youth Award

In addition to these nine categories, the Mayor will also present her special Commendation Awards to people she has met throughout her Mayoral Year who have played a key part in helping make Shrewsbury a special place to live and work.

Mayor of Shrewsbury, Councillor Elisabeth Roberts, said: “Every year, the Mayor's Awards recognise those who come from all areas of the town and contribute so much in so many different ways. It's lovely to hear from anyone who believes someone deserves to be recognised in this way and we hope to have a variety of nominations for all categories.

“So, this is the last chance for people to get their entries in for this year’s awards and I would urge people to get nominating! I look forward to hearing all about people’s various achievements and to meeting the winners at the awards ceremony next month.”

Full information on the criteria for the categories can be found on the Town Council’s website at where nominations can be submitted via the online form.

For any queries regarding the nomination process, please contact the Mayor's Assistant, Sally Nicholson, on 01743 257655 or email

The closing date for entries is 12.30pm on March 24.
