Civic Award Call for Nominations - Lincolnshire Magazine -

Who Will Be Next To Win Lincoln’s Top Honour?

The Trustees of the prestigious Lincoln Civic Award are urging everyone to put their thinking caps on over the Christmas period.

They have thrown down a challenge to people, encouraging them to suggest outstanding individuals, impressive organisations and successful companies, who they consider are worthy of receiving the city’s top honour in 2015.

Credit to the City

This fantastic silver award is presented annually to a person, charity or business which has, in the opinion of the trustees, brought credit to the city of Lincoln

People may want to nominate them on the strength of a single act or because of their performance over a period of time. The winner will be presented with the award at a special ceremony in the city’s historic Guildhall.

The Civic Award was made by the late Lincoln Silversmith Derek Birch and is in the form of an eight-sided obelisk which stands 19 inches high.

It is as much a conversation piece as it was when it was first presented in 1967.

An amazing list of individuals, organisations and firms now have pride of place in the roll of honour for this award.

Lincoln Civic Award Trustees Chairman Henry Ruddock said: “Lincoln is a city of growing importance within the East Midlands. Each year we are attracting more students and a wider variety of organisations and world class companies.

“It is impossible to guess who might be nominated for the prestigious award, but the trustees enjoy a challenge when it comes to deciding the winner – so we welcome as wide a range of suggestions as possible!”

The Lincoln Street Pastors were the proud recipients of the 2014 award.

Raised Profile

Every individual, organisation or business which has received the award so far – and they include past recipients such as Lincoln City Football Club, the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, Radio Lincolnshire, Micrometric Techniques’ founder Dr Maurice Gates and the Lincolnshire Echo, Sport presenter John Inverdale and The Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia – say that it has raised their profile.

Last year (2013) it was presented to Lincoln-based Running Imp International – a 25-year-old business headed by directors Chris Illsley and Caroline Birkin. The company is a well-known supplier of medals and trophies for events at home and abroad.

Whoever wins the much-coveted Civic Award will keep the trophy for one year – ultimately retaining a small replica.

The Civic Award will be presented in a ceremony in Lincoln’s Guildhall on April 15, 2015.
