Our annual Chairs Awards took place on Friday evening, hosted at the Woughton House Hotel.
The awards, which aim to showcase the brilliant work that is undertaken by people across our community, also saw the official launch of the new ‘Woughton Cares’ initiative, the councils big focus for the coming year.
Award winners included people who have gone over and above to improve the environment, make a difference to young people, volunteered with projects and supported Woughton through donations, offers of help and simply by being a good community member. There is a full list of winners below.
‘Woughton Cares’ is a new initiative by Woughton Community Council to support our local communities through a range of activities, services and support to help address the real challenges that affect so many of our residents; access to advice, ways to reduce poverty, support to help communities take control and help each other. Led by key members and a team of officers, we aim to bring new projects, services and options to local people over the coming years to make real changes and help make Woughton a great place to live in, work in and visit.

If you know someone who is deserving of an award, then please contact us to nominate them for next year. This might be someone who helps out around your estate, or runs a community group, clears up rubbish or plants flower beds. It could be someone who, despite barriers, has achieved something awesome, or someone who goes the extra mile to help those in need. Whoever they are, let us know so we can show how vibrant, supportive, determined and great Woughton is.
