This report presents nominations for consideration under the Council’s annual Citizen and Young Citizen of Honour Awards 2022.
The Citizen of Honour Award was introduced in November 1996. Five years later, the scheme was extended to recognise the efforts of younger residents under the age of 18 through the Young Citizen of Honour Award.
Over the last 25 years, the award has honoured 107 residents of the Borough, with nominations being received from all areas of Fareham.
This year, the Council has received 9 nominations overall. There are 6 nominations for the Citizen of Honour Award (18 and over) and 3 nominations for the Young Citizen of Honour Award (under 18).
At its meeting on 16 December 2019, the Executive agreed to limit the award to one Citizen of Honour and One Young Citizen of Honour for the years 2020 and 2021.
Due to the extended timetable for the completion of the Fareham Live Project, it is recommended that the scheme continues with one winner from each category.
RESOLVED that the Executive agrees that:
(a) no more than one candidate is selected from the attached nominations to be formally recognised as Citizen of Honour 2022;
(b) no more than one candidate is selected from the attached nominations to be formally recognised as Young Citizen of Honour 2022 (under 18);
(c) candidate 4 is selected from the attached nominations at confidential Appendix A to the report;
(d) candidate 8 is selected from the attached nominations at confidential B to the report; and
(e) the persons listed at 4 and 8 in the confidential Appendices A & B to the report be selected for the annual Citizen of Honour & Young Citizen of Honour Awards 2022.
