Back in 2012, the Town Council set up the accolade to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, to recognise the achievements of outstanding young people, aged under 20. The Town Council is seeking nominations for the 2021 award to follow on from last year’s winner Josh Taylor.

Josh was nominated by Brendan Giblin who said: “Josh Taylor is an inspirational young man.

“As soon as the first lockdown was announced he delivered notes to all his neighbours (and to people in many streets), saying that they could contact him for help with shopping etc.
