Winners of the Mayor’s Community Awards 2022 announced
This year’s unsung heroes receiving a Mayor’s Community Award have been named, with a five-year-old litter picker among the winners.
Outgoing Mayor Cllr Colin Huckle and incoming Mayor Cllr Ann Weaving have been out and about meeting our worthy winners to give them a big shout out for the selfless work they do for others in Weymouth.
And the winners are…
Hali-Rai. Aka Hali Hero, or the Litter-pick Legend, our youngest winner at five-years-old spent the last year regularly clearing The Marsh and encouraging others by her example.
Dawn Sewell. Dawn is an unsung hero and true pillar of the community, being instrumental with the Littlemoor Community Action Group and Littlemoor Food Bank.

Weymouth and Portland Marine Litter Project. David Taylor and Jane Fuhrmann representing Weymouth and Portland Marine Litter Project received the award for the provision of receptacles for the safe disposal of fishing tackle.
