The shortlist of nominees has been announced for this year’s Broadland Community at Heart Awards, sponsored by The Space and The Romanian Wine Company.
The Broadland Community at Heart Awards' 11 categories celebrate and reward those in the district’s communities who go above and beyond what is expected of them.
Invitations to the awards have been sent to the 30 nominees who have made an exceptional contribution to their communities, from achieving highly in sport to providing an important service to local people.
Cllr Andrew Proctor, Leader of Broadland District Council said
“Thank you to all who made a nomination to the Broadland Community at Heart Awards. Once again, all the judges have been very impressed with the quality of nominations we have received which made choosing a shortlist a very difficult task. Congratulations to all of the shortlisted nominees, I look forward to meeting everyone at the ceremony later this month.”
