To date more than 80 people have received the award, with members of local sports clubs and societies, charity workers and fund-raisers ranking among them. Last year the Council chose to honour a further 9 members of the community they were Carol Broadhead, Brian Hall, David Kemp, Peder Nielsen, Mary Seldon, John and Sylvia Silver, and Betty Whiteley
The awards also include a Young Distinguished Citizen category which in 2012 was awarded to Lawrence Hall for his work at the Conquest Theatre.
Recipients can live in neighbouring parishes but their work must be for the benefit of Bromyard and Winslow and they must not be town or county councillors, nominated by a close family member or a previous nominee.
