Jean Ware Legacy Award
This award is given to a young person (aged 11 - 17) living in the village who is doing exceptionally well at a sport or in the Arts and who would benefit from financial support as they continue to train and participate. The Award has a maximum value of £1000.
History: in 2012 West Moors Parish (now Town) Council celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the Summer Olympic Games in London, by introducing the Legacy Award. Due to the success of the Award the (then) Parish Council decided that the scheme should continue. It was originally granted to a young resident of West Moors who had demonstrated a particular talent in sport or other physical activity, with the aim of furthering that individual's talent. In 2015 the council extended the award scheme to include the Arts, such as music, drama, painting, literature etc. Further, following the sad death of Councillor Jean Ware in 2016, who was instrumental in setting up the scheme, the Award was renamed in her honour.
