Welcome to Wetherby Town Council

Jubilee Award

Wetherby Town Council held their annual Jubilee Awards Ceremony on Thursday 14 December in the Town Hall, to recognise young people under the age of 20, who have made a great contribution to the community.

With a record-breaking number of entries this year, the winner was announced as follows:

Amelia Irwin aged 9, who raised £1155.70 for St Gemma’s Hospice by selling homemade cakes, jewellery, and hot chocolate on her driveway one Sunday afternoon.

Amelia is a Brownie and was nominated by Jean Woodcock, Leader at 7th Wetherby Brownies for her huge achievement at such a young age.

The award was judged by, Captain Yvonne West Salvation Army, Wetherby Ward Cllr Penny Stables, Wetherby Ward Councillor Norma Harrington, The Deputy Mayor of Wetherby Cllr. Connor Mulhall and Wetherby Ward Councillor Alan Lamb.

Deputy Mayor, Cllr Connor Mulhall who presented the Award said “We are so happy with the record breaking 21 entries we received this year, the quality of nominations was very high, and it was incredibly hard for the judges to make a decision.

“Everyone deserves to be recognised for their contribution to the town, and the judges consider everyone a winner. We recognise that the amazing young people of today are very much our future for tomorrow.”

Amelia was presented with a glass Jubilee Award Trophy, a framed certificate and has had her name added to the Honours Board, which is displayed in the Town Hall.
