The scheme commends individuals for their contributions towards the arts, entertainment, sporting and academic achievements and also for their work in the local community. A wooden shield depicting Meltham’s Coat of Arms is presented by the Council to the recipients of the award.
There are a lot of really super people in Meltham, Wilshaw and Helme who either give their time and energy to the community and worthwhile causes or endeavour to be the best at their chosen area of expertise, so putting our Township on the map! This award, albeit a small gesture, goes someway to acknowledging how proud our community is of them.
