Good Citizenship Award

About this memory

Phyllis was awarded The Sir William Y Darling Bequest for Good Citizenship around 1984.

Each year the Council invites organisations and individuals in the city to nominate persons for consideration for presentation of the award for Good Citizenship instituted by the Will of the late Sir William Y Darling, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, 1941-1944. The award is made to the citizen or citizens of Edinburgh who, in the opinion of the Council, “has or have done most for the City’s Honour and Welfare” during the preceding year.
