Nominations for the 2021 Wealden Hero Awards closed on 31 July 2021.

I cannot thank Wealden residents enough for their collective efforts over the last few months to fight the pandemic. From the overwhelming number of nominations I received, I know that so many people across Wealden have made personal sacrifices and put their own lives at risk to help others. These individuals are our ‘invisible’ heroes and it is important they get the recognition they deserve.

I had the privilege to meet many of these individuals throughout the summer and thank them personally for their dedication and efforts.
