Community champions were celebrated at a prestigious awards event at the Town Hall.

Launched in 2014, the Civic Awards recognise residents, groups, organisations and businesses which have made a real difference to their community.

The event last week saw each individual presented with a commemorative certificate which was handed out by the Mayor of Peterborough, Councillor John Peach.

The list of winners, chosen by Peterborough City Council’s Honours Panel, were for: community involvement, sport, art and culture, environment, business, young person and lifetime achievement which went to Peter Moyse (pictured) for founding and developing the John Clare Society which he has served since 1981.
