Nominations Open for Henley Town Medal

Nominations are now invited for the Henley Town Medal.

The Town Medal is for Henley residents who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to do something great in the town. The Council official objective says, the Town Medal will be awarded ‘to a person who has enhanced the status of the Town and the well-being of its residents for a continuous period of at least 10 years by their clearly evidenced links with the Town or its organisations.’

The person must fulfil all of the following criteria at the time of consideration:

  • Either live, or has lived, within 5 miles of the Town Centre, or work in the Town or actively participate in the Town’s organisations.
  • Have significantly contributed above and beyond the call of duty to the sustainable well-being of the Town and its residents, and / or organisations.
  • Be of mature and good character and a positive role model for all the citizens of the Town.

The Town Medal can be posthumously awarded up to 3 years after the death of the individual.

Last year Invesco Perpetual, Brian Hughes and Richard Reed were awarded a Town Medal.
