The presentation of the Civic Awards will take place at the Mayor Making Ceremony on Wednesday, May 22 at Ludlow Methodist Church in Broad Street.

All residents are invited to attend this special occasion. Mayor Making will not only celebrate the recipients of the Ludlow Civic Awards but also witness the swearing-in of the new Mayor and the appointment of individuals to various civic and ceremonial roles.
