The Newbury Town Young Persons Civic Award

Newbury Town Council, in partnership with The Swift Group introduced a new award in 2008, The Newbury Town Young Persons Civic Award, aimed specifically at young people up to and including 25 years of age. This award will be run in parallel with the Newbury Town Civic Award which was introduced fourteen years ago. Both these awards are to be presented each year to ‘an unsung hero’, who in the opinion of a panel of judges has made an exceptional contribution to the Newbury community.

Swift's Managing Director was on hand to present the Young Persons Civic award to Bethany Cooper. 16 year old Bethany won the award for her work with the disabled charity PALS and also helping out the Beavers group in Thatcham.

Bethany says she's really pleased to be recognised: "I feel proud and very happy that I've been given this honour. I really enjoy all the volunteer work that I do and I get so much out of it. This award is just an added bonus really, I get so much out of seeing people enjoying themselves."
