Nominations are open for the annual Broadland Community at Heart Awards.

The awards, which are now in their fourth year, were officially launched by Cllr Shaun Vincent, Leader of Broadland District Council, today (Friday 10 August 2018) along with Alice Marshall-Chalk and Chris Vines of Price Bailey, who are the main sponsor of the Broadland Community at Heart Awards 2018. 

The Broadland Community at Heart Awards reward those in the district who go above and beyond what is expected of them to improve the lives of those around them. Previous finalists and winners have included school groups, carers, litter pickers, Scout and Guide leaders, sportspeople, teaching assistants, devoted friends, policemen, community choirs and more.

Finalists will be chosen for each of the ten award categories who will then be invited to an awards ceremony on Tuesday 30 October 2018, where the winners will be revealed.

“We know there are many individuals and groups in Broadland who work tirelessly to benefit their community and these people often go unnoticed. Although they do not seek recognition I hope that these awards will give people the chance to say a well-deserved thank you to those who have helped them and made a difference to their lives. I am very much looking forward to reading this year’s nominations and I’m sure compiling the shortlist will not be an easy task,” said Cllr Vincent.

John Warren, Partner at Price Bailey in Norwich and also a returning judge for the awards, commented: “We are delighted to once again support the Broadland Community at Heart Awards 2018 and feel it is important to celebrate those outstanding individuals in our community who are driven to make life just that little bit better for everyone else. I’m thrilled we can return as main sponsors of the awards this year and proud to support this important recognition of everyday heroes. I look forward to reading about local people who make exceptional efforts help make a difference and improve things for us all.” 

The awards ceremony will be held at The Space in Sprowston, which also sponsors the Broadland Community at Heart Awards 2018.
