The Town Council’s Community Awards were launched in 2011 to celebrate the people who make a difference to the Corsham community. Over the years, clubs, groups, hard-working volunteers, young people and local sports stars have all been recognised.

The search for award-recipients runs from January to March, when nomination forms for that year’s competition are available. The nominees are then considered by the Awards Panel, made up of four Town Councillors, who choose the winners. The certificates are handed out at a special Corsham Celebrates event (previously the Annual Town Meeting) in April.
