History of the Pride of Houghton Awards

The Pride of Houghton Scheme was set up by the Town Council in 2002 after much discussion and planning. The Council wanted to have a scheme which honoured the work of the unsung heroes of the town and the work that goes on behind the scenes which may not always be recognised. Nominations have been and are invited for people who go beyond the call of duty and who selflessly put others before themselves.

The scheme was amended in 2016 to include new categories, and highly commended nominees, and new categories are still being added to allow nominations for as many sections of the community as possible. The Pride of Houghton Awards categories for 2018 are:


Young Person (Under 18)

Carer (The Extra Mile Award)

Care Home Workers

Community Facilitator / Local Hero

Local Group

Local Business/Organisation in Houghton Regis

Lifetime Achievement / Special Award

 Nominations are invited until Monday 27th August 2018 @ 5pm and

the Awards Ceremony will be taking place on Saturday 13th October 2018 


Please complete the nomination form below :
