Nominations open for Watford’s annual civic awards.  Every day across Watford, there are people making positive contributions to the lives of others.

These actions often go unrewarded. You can change this by nominating one of these outstanding individuals, groups or businesses for an Audentior Award.

The Audentior annual civic awards, now in their eleventh year, are the Mayor’s special way of rewarding local people who go above and beyond the call of duty. The awards ceremony is a glittering celebration that takes place at Watford Colosseum.

Elected Mayor of Watford, Dorothy Thornhill, said: “These civic awards are set up to recognise hard work and dedication. We are lucky in Watford to be overflowing with people who regularly do wonderful things for the community – be it as a carer, a volunteer, business person or neighbour. Help us to say thank you by nominating someone now.”

Roger Gagan, who won the Special Achievement Award last year, said “It was a great pleasure to have worked with local businesses in Watford over the years and I was honoured and delighted to have received this prestigious award.”
