Young Citizen Ceremony Postponed


Wolverhampton Young Citizen Awards ceremony postponed

In view of the extended Covid restrictions, the Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the year awards ceremony has been postponed until September 16th.

Organising Committee Chairman Rotarian Roger Timbrell , said:

‘There were record entries this year and the judges report that the selection of finalists has been a difficult job. Many of those who are not selected as finalists have made such significant contributions to their community that they will receive certificates of commendation’. As Wolves legend John Richards says in his video recorded to promote the awards ‘ These awards celebrate and recognise all the voluntary work that young people do. No act of kindness, however small, should go unrecognised. Just a nomination alone is a powerful way to say thank you’ To view his video and that of other supporters including B.B.C. T.V.Repair Shop star Jay Blades go to

Awards will be given in two age categories : 13 – 18 and 19 – 25.  Subject to Covid 19 restrictions the awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 16 September in the Mayoral Suite.  The ceremony will be hosted by the Mayor of Wolverhampton, who is one of the judges, and the winners will be announced by Chairman of judges Peter Madeley, political editor of the Express and Star.

These awards were devised and are sponsored by the five Rotary Clubs in the city and organised in partnership with the City Council, The Express and Star, Wolverhampton Wanderers Foundation and supported by Carvers Building Supplies Ltd. and the James Beattie Charitable Trust.
