A message from the Town Mayor

Since my Election in May, it has been my privilege to meet so many inspirational people who have given their time selflessly and without hesitation to the benefit of the Town and its residents.

This award recognises and awards an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the Town of Wimborne Minster and its residents. The individual will have demonstrated exceptional commitment to an unpaid activity.

I would like to invite nominations for this award, the winner of which will receive a £100 donation to the Charity of their choice, second place will receive a £50 donation to the charity of their choice and third place will receive a £25 donation to the charity of their choice.

The winner will be announced at the Light Switch on event on Saturday 26th November and will be invited to switch on the Christmas Lights in the Square with me.
