AN AWARD ceremony to recognise village talent and achievement could be coming to Meltham.
Plans to start Pride In Meltham, an award scheme, were discussed by Meltham Town Council.
It will recognise the achievements of Meltham residents and organisations past and present inside and outside the village.
Councillors have discussed awarding a plaque to recognise their work. The town is no stranger to talent.
Past and present residents include actor John Tiffany, who picked up best director at the Olivier awards last month, artist Darren Baker and poet Simon Armitage, who is among the bookies’ favourites to become the next Poet Laureate.
Town councillor Nigel Priestley says people of the town will be eligible regardless of who they are and the size of their achievement.
Clr Priestley said: “We want to recognise these people and the tremendous contribution these people are making, not just here but around the country.
“Meltham has some really good people in it and their achievements should be recognised.
“Meltham Moor Primary School received outstanding ratings in all categories of its Ofsted report and Meltham Football Club is doing very well so there’s a lot in our village to celebrate.”
