Watford is a wonderful town and amazing people have been part of its history over the years.  Some are well known (like one of the world’s biggest pop stars) but many have made their mark more locally.


Each month we will be announcing new nominations – so the list will grow as we celebrate over 2022. Our centenary year is the opportunity to recognise our favourite Watfordians – if you want to see your favourite on the list, please nominate here.


They might be a name from the past or still active in the town today – just let us know why they are an important part of the town’s history in 100 words. If we have more than 100 nominations, we will consider them against the criteria of their contribution to the life and community of Watford.
