Note for Editors:
The Town Awards scheme has been in operation since 2000, the first awards were presented at the Annual Town Meeting of 10 April 2000. Nominations for the Town Award are invited every year, when any member of the public of Horley Town can complete a nomination form, together with a seconder, to propose an individual for outstanding service or commitment to the town. Horley Town Council is responsible for the administration and final selection of award winners according to strict guidelines and criteria. An Awards Sub Committee reviews and makes recommendations to Full Council. Award winners receive a Town Badge and a Diploma stating their citation. Presentations are usually made either at the Annual Town Meeting, or other appropriate events, subject to the award winners’ approval.
