Calderdale Council has always celebrated the work of individuals who have contributed to their communities and to recognize the efforts of outstanding individuals within Calderdale the Citizen Celebration Award was established in 2014.
To encourage and enable participation, the award was promoted through Ward Forums, councillors, partner organisations and local networks and this year there were 50 nominations from the 17 council wards with one or more nominations in each ward.
The Ward Councillors in each area worked with Neighbourhood Teams to put a winner forward who would represent their area at the Calderdale Citizen of the Year Celebration event held on Wednesday 24 February 2016 at Halifax Town Hall.
The Civic Advisory Group went through all the nominees put forward to choose the winner Mr Joe Braithwaite, chairman of the Elland and District Partnership, who was awarded a certificate and a contribution of £250 for a community initiative by the Mayor of Calderdale, Councillor Lisa Lambert.
