Published 4 June 2024

Newbury’s Mayor-Elect, Cllr Andy Moore, was delighted to award Milla the Mayor’s Cadet Award on Friday 17 May in school in the presence of Headteacher, Dr Fitter. Milla has been awarded the award for her outstanding contribution to the CCF at St Bart’s and her contribution to the Newbury community. She was nominated for the Young Persons’ Civic Award this year. Milla is highly active in her adventure training in the Newbury community. She has volunteered at the Waterside Centre for some time, where she has assisted in the accessible climbing sessions. She has volunteered at various community events, including the Newbury 10K.

Her duties will include supporting the Mayor in his attendance of various public events such as the Victoria Park Family Day, Michaelmas Fair, Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day.

Milla has recently successfully completed the 45 mile Ten Tors event on Dartmoor. This is yet another testament to her incredible teamwork, leadership and determination. She thoroughly deserves this Mayor’s Cadet Award.
