Who’s at the heart of your community? Who really makes a difference to your area or group or your life in Northampton?

Help recognise the people who work hard to make this town a better place to live by nominating them for a Heart of the Community Awards 2018.

Nominations are now open until Friday, 23 March and residents are being invited to nominate friends, family, neighbours and colleagues who make a difference in their community.

The Mayor of Northampton, Cllr Gareth Eales, said: “The Heart of the Community Award provide a great opportunity for us all to say thank you and well done to incredible people who use their spare time to help their local community.

“There are so many individuals and groups that make a real difference in the town and I hope that people will spare a few minutes of their day to complete a nomination form, telling us about someone they know.”

Nominations can be submitted online at www.northampton.gov.uk/heartofthecommunity or by emailing the Mayor’s office at mayor@northampton.gov.uk

All nominations will be considered by a panel of independent judges and the winners will be invited to a celebration event at The Guildhall in April.
