Published: 11 April 2022

Bognor Regis Town Council were delighted to be able to hold their annual Civic Reception last Wednesday 6th April at the Butlin’s Shoreline Conference Centre, their first for two years, due to the presence of Covid-19. 

Town Mayor, Cllr Steve Goodheart and his Mayoress, Mrs Andrea Goodheart hosted the evening, with dignitaries present including the High Sheriff of West Sussex, Mr Neil Hart, the Vice-Chairman of West Sussex County Council, Cllr Sujan Wickremaratchi, the Chairman of Arun District Council, Cllr Jim Brooks amongst many other local Mayor’s and Chairmen, Bognor Regis Town Councillors, the Mayor’s Cadet  and Bognor Regis Town Crier, Mrs Jane Smith.

Also in attendance were representatives from an array of local organisations and charities, collecting their Grant Aid cheques, awarded by Bognor Regis Town Council. The Mayor presented his Mayor’s Good Citizen Award to Danny Dawes, of Grandad’s Front Room, for his immense service to the Town and the Young Citizen’s Award 2022 was awarded to Danny’s son, Czarli Tyrolczyk-Dawes, for his work as a young carer and to the community.

Featuring a raffle to raise funds for the Mayor’s chosen charities; Rox Music & Arts Charity and HFT, as well as a musical interlude from The Regis Jazz Band, the evening was extremely enjoyable. The Mayor and all at Bognor Regis Town Council would like to once again thank this year’s Grant Aid recipients, for their outstanding work in providing a range of services which benefit the Town and residents, as well as the award winners and of course Butlins, for hosting.
