Consider the criteria of the six categories and write a brief synopsis of why you think this person, team or organisation should be considered. Please send the completed nomination form by April 30th 2022. The Ramsgate Society Committee will consider all nominees using the criteria and members’ comments and will let all members know of the final selection in August. The Civic Awards Ceremony will be held in November. We look forward to receiving all your nominations.

There are six categories for our Civic Champion Awards:

Arts and Culture

Enhancing and increasing participation in arts, including music and creative leisure activities.


Achieving outstanding results by initiating, organising and/or delivering a community programme or event which has benefitted the town or a community.


Improving and enhancing development opportunities for children and young people.

Heritage and Environment

Improving or revitalising the environment, culture and heritage.

Health and Wellbeing

Providing services that enhance the health and wellbeing of people in the town. For example, developing sport and leisure opportunities or enhancing and increasing participation in physical sport, leisure activity or recreational pursuits.

NOTE: This award is intended for those involved in ‘running’ the sport/leisure activity, e.g., coaching/administration, etc as opposed to those who participate in these activities.

Community Champion Award

A special achievement award celebrating an individual or individuals for their outstanding contribution and dedication to Ramsgate over their lifetime or significant period. This person will have gone above and beyond, over many years, demonstrating a long-term voluntary commitment to the town and the wider community.

In special circumstances, the Society may make a lifetime award to a person who lives outside the town’s boundaries, providing the deserving voluntary service concerned has been wholly or predominantly carried out for the benefit of Ramsgate and its people.

On 11th June 2021 the Department for Transport notified the Interested Parties that they were undertaking a further consultation in order to allow them to redetermine the DCO following the decision of the High Court on 15th May 2021 that the previous approval was unlawful.

The main points the Secretary of State has identified for consideration are:

"Pioneering Places" is an ambitious project funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England and delivered by Turner Contemporary. Part of the project is an exciting new temporary piece of public art to be installed near the East Cliff bandstand.

Since 2018, over 70 local children from St Laurence’s Junior Academy and Ramsgate Arts Primary have been leading this project. Turner Contemporary staff have been working with them through regular attendance at their schools and the provision of weekly creative workshops. As part of the project the children interviewed a number of artists to work with them to convert their ideas into a piece of public art and as a result, they then appointed Conrad Shawcross RA, a renowned British artist who has exhibited internationally.
