Nominees from the past two years have been held-over to 2022 so they can attend a planned in-person presentation at Bicester’s Mayor-making ceremony in May.

Residents can be nominated for a wide range of reasons, including outstanding achievement in their field such as sports or culture, contribution to commercial life, improving the local environment, improving other people’s lives, gained national or international recognition for Bicester, or an act of bravery.

The annual Good Citizen Awards is open to anyone to nominate an individual and the deadline for nominations is Friday, March 11.

Council leader councillor Richard Mould said: “We know there are a lot of people in our community who go above and beyond to make Bicester a better place to live and work.

“The Good Citizen Award was designed to publicly recognise these people and I urge residents to nominate anyone they think deserves special recognition and a public thank you for their hard-work.

“This award is a great way thank someone special who you feel has made a real impact on the town and its residents.”
