Odiham Parish Council works in partnership with a number of community organisations to present annual Community Awards in recognition of outstanding service to the community. Any resident of the civic parish may be eligible for an award and must be nominated by at least one resident who is not a family member.
The OPC Community Awards are an opportunity for our community to show appreciation to those who have gone ‘above and beyond’ to make a positive difference, to help those in need and tirelessly volunteer their time to support others. The 2023 Community Awards will open for nominations in March 2023 and promoted to the local community.
In 2022 Community Awards were presented at the Jubilee Street Party and were awarded to:
For service to the community as District Councillor for Odiham for 17 years, for always being willing to get involved to support local residents and in particular helping with local housing issues.
For being a long serving member of the Hook & Odiham Lions Club supporting the local community through volunteering at the annual Spooktacula event, community litter picks and more recently the Odiham Community Speedwatch group.
For being a Trustee and Chair of Odiham Consolidated Charities for over 30 years, supporting the community through managing the Almshouses and other local charities.
The first Young Persons Community Award was presented to Emily for being an amazing ambassador to Robert May’s School through volunteering and fundraising to support the school library and raise money to improve pupil facilities as well as regularly volunteering to support the local community.
