Bungay Civic Awards
Each year Bungay Town Council makes three annual awards in recognition of the contribution made to Bungay by individuals within the community.
There are three awards:
The Bezant Cup Award for the Bungay Sports Personality of the Year was set up in 1980, using a trophy first given for sporting events in 1924 by J H Bezant
The Civic Award for those doing valuable, dedicated and often unsung work in the community, was setup by the Town Council in 1998
The Trevor Collyer Cup specifically for young people making a contribution in sport, school or the community. This was given by family and friends in memory of the former badminton player Trevor Collyer.
