Desborough Town Council’s Honoured Citizen Award is a tribute to a member of the community and confers no material honours or special privileges. Awards may be made at any time and will not necessarily be made on an annual or regular basis. Awards will take the form of an official letter or certificate, and may be presented at an appropriate place such as the recipient’s school or workplace, at an event, at a Town Council meeting, sent by post, or presented in private. The scheme is intended to celebrate exceptional citizenship.
