The Tony Jerram award is given each year to someone who has contributed greatly to the community of Badsey or Aldington. This may be in terms of community service, or in furthering the aims of the Society. The award was first presented in 2009 in memory of Tony Jerram, the first Chairman of The Badsey Society, who died on 3rd April 2008.
The decision as to who was to be the recipient of the first award was made by the Committee but, in subsequent years, each Autumn, members of The Badsey Society are given the chance to nominate a person, irrespective of whether the person nominated is a Badsey Society member. A decision is then made by the Committee at their January meeting and the award made at the AGM in February. Tony’s widow, Barbara Jerram, usually makes the presentation.
