The Mayor of Bath

Mayor’s Young Citizen of the Year Award 2013

The Mayor of Bath, Councillor Cherry Beath welcomed finalists for the Young Citizen of the Year 2014 Award to a presentation reception at the Guildhall on 17th July 2014.

The scheme began 19 years ago to counteract negative publicity about young people by celebrating their many fine achievements.  The award is for a 16, 17 or 18 year old who has made good progress at school or given service to the local community.  Teenagers must live in Bath, or attend a school/college in the city or belong to a Bath-based group.

The Mayor thanked the Judges and Nominators and congratulated the finalists on reaching the last stages of the competition.  She then announced the winner as Cadet Harry Jenkins, a pupil of Beechen Cliff School and an active member of Bath Air Cadets.  Harry was presented with the Young Citizen of the Year badge, a certificate, cheque and a Bath Aqua Glass bowl.
