Civic Dinner 2024

On the 23rd of March 2024, the Mayor hosted the annual Civic Dinner, commemorating the Mayoral Year and the town’s accomplishments. Councillor Stephen Cooper, the Mayor of Trowbridge, welcomed over 160 guests for the evening, including his two chosen charities for the mayoral year – Stepping Stones and Trowbridge Future, where the event raised over £1,800. The theme of the event was the Golden Age of cinema, with the hall transformed to evoke a cinematic atmosphere. Following the main event, guests had the opportunity to enjoy themed cocktails in the Mayor’s Parlour while relishing live jazz music.

During the ceremony, the Civic award was presented to Jill Neighbour from Storehouse Food Bank and Rob Colebourne, recognizing their significant contributions to the welfare of the people of Trowbridge through community service, charitable efforts, personal achievements, and acts of outstanding citizenship. Stone Developments received the Town Enhancement award for a development that notably enhances Trowbridge.

The Grove Primary School choir delighted guests with locally written, environmentally themed songs. The Mayor surprised the teachers and students with the Mayor’s Award, acknowledging their dedication by volunteering Saturday nights and Sundays to support the town council.
