Do you know someone who deserves to be recognised for their work trying to make Bridgwater a better place during the past 12 months?

If so they could be worth nominating for the Bridgwater Cup.

The prestigious cup, which was made in London in 1768, is made of silver gilt and is awarded each year by Bridgwater Town Council to someone fellow residents think have made a significant contribution to the life of the town.

To nominate individuals or organisations, you need to do is submit a suggestion with a short paragraph saying your reasons and then either drop it in to Judi Fisher at the Town Hall Office or email

You can also send an envelope clearly marked ‘The Bridgwater Cup- Nominations, Confidential’ to Judi Fisher, Bridgwater Town Council, Town Hall, High Street, Bridgwater, TA6 3AS.

The deadline for 2019-20 entries is February 27, 2020 and the decision will be taken at the Full Town Council meeting of Thursday March 5.

Previous recent winners include Kelly Llewelyn, organiser of the Bridgwater Homeless Shoebox Appeal, and Mike Slade, leader of the Bridgwater branch of the Inland Waterways Association for his tireless volunteer work.
