Every two years Wokingham Without and Crowthorne Parish Councils jointly issue awards to deserving individuals or groups working voluntarily in either of the two parishes.
Awarded to individuals who have contributed significantly to the quality of life in either of the two parishes by their public/community activity.
A Special Award may also be given to a group or organisation established in either parish for its contribution to community life.
