This year The Ramsgate Society Committee is asking all members to nominate potential Civic Champions for 2022. Please complete the nomination form (Link to your form on website). Consider the criteria of the six categories and write a brief synopsis of why you think this person, team or organisation should be considered. Each Ramsgate Society member can nominate up to three candidates. Make sure the name of the nominee is clearly written and provide contact details if you have them. Please send the completed nomination form <>  by May 31st 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.
