Foreword by the Mayor of Merton
It’s no secret that Merton is a great place to live, this is in no small part due to the wonderful people who live here. They support our community time and time again, with a real commitment to others who live, work or learn in the borough.

As mayor of Merton I am lucky enough to meet many of these people who make a difference in our community. Thanks to this year’s Merton Civic Awards, in association with the Wimbledon Guardian, we will be giving them the kind of recognition they deserve.

This is a great opportunity to say “thank you” to them and encourage even more people to get involved.

Councillor Krystal Miller
Mayor of Merton

Foreword by the Wimbledon Guardian
It was this time last year I joined the Wimbledon Guardian and have since moved to Merton. The decision to make my home in Merton was an easy one, after being perfectly placed to interact with the wonderful people, organisations and businesses that populate this lovely suburban borough.

The 2013 inaugural Merton Civic Awards threw up some well established names of hard working community spirited people, but also introduced me to many of whose efforts I was previously completely unaware.

It is my hope that with the help of the residents of Merton next year we can again bring forward another list of worthy candidates for a much earned moment in the spotlight and give them the praise they deserve.
