In July 2020, I launched the 🌈Wealden Hero Award🌈 to extend my thanks and gratitude for the efforts of Wealden residents to overcome the many challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, and to celebrate the many acts of kindness and community spirit throughout the crisis. Please see the below stories of their stories and media coverage.
However, since then the country had suffered two more national lockdowns and new community leaders and Heroes have emerged and stepped up to the challenge. I know there are many more of you out there who have made personal sacrifices during the last two national lockdowns and I am keen that you too get the recognition you deserve.
I am relaunching the Wealden Hero Awards to celebrate new stories of those who have provided a lifeline to our most vulnerable neighbours in the community.
The nominations are open to individuals, as well as businesses, schools, charities and other organisations.
Nominations close on 31 July 2021. To nominate someone, click here.
Let's celebrate our Wealden champions together, as a community.
🌈Wealden Hero Awards🌈 are kindly supported by Uckfield FM, Hailsham FM, Sussex Express, Hailsham News and The Hailsham Eye.
