Appointment of Freemen/freewomen

Oswestry Town Council has agreed a process to appoint Honorary Freemen or Freewomen of Oswestry.   The honorary role was introduced in 2013 and since this date 5 appointments have been made which recognise the significant contribution the individuals have made to the community of Oswestry.

Individuals from all walks of life and all sections of the community who have made a difference to Oswestry are eligible to be appointed.

Anyone interested in nominating an individual should contact sandratrevor(at) initially to obtain details of the eligibility and nomination criteria.

The deadline for nominations is the 26th of September with appointments being made by Council on the 21st of October.

Mayor of Oswestry, Councillor John Price said " Being appointed a Freeman or Freewoman of your town is a huge honour and it is in place to recognise those who have given extensive and distinguished service to the community. We are not limiting the number of appointments but only those whose contributions stand above the contributions made by most other people will be considered".
