Twyford Citizen of the Year 2023

Twyford Parish Council are pleased to announce the 2023 Twyford Citizen of the Year as Ian Wisdom.

Ian was presented with a plaque and a gift at the Twyford Together Community Awards event on 18th March 2024, by Twyford Parish Council Vice Chair John Bowley.

The Councillors agreed that in recognition of being outstanding Twyford citizen Ian should join previous recipients of the Twyford Parish Council Citizen of the Year award and wish to offer a huge thank you to all residents who made nominations for this category.

Below highlights why Ian is a worthy winner of this award:

For the past 13 years, Ian has been the driving force behind the Twyford Beer Festival, an event that has become an annual gathering in our village but most importantly, it has raised thousands of pounds for the male cancer charity, Orchid.

The festival itself welcomes people from far and wide to enjoy some great beers, ciders, food and music and all staff and acts give their time for free to help raise funds.

Ian also provides the accompanying bar at Wokingham Music Festival and gets involved with other community events such as the Twyford Village Fete.

Today, as we honour Ian as our Citizen of the Year, let us also take a moment to reflect on the importance of community involvement.


Congratulations Ian!
