“Celebrating Wealden Heroes” is a campaign to extend my thanks and gratitude to Wealden residents for their efforts to overcome this challenge and to celebrate the many acts of kindness and community spirit of Wealden residents throughout the crisis.
Nominations for the Wealden Hero Award are now closed.
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.
I would like to thank Uckfield FM, Kent and Sussex Courier, Sussex Express and Hailsham FM for helping me spread the message about Wealden Hero Awards and celebrate all these extraordinary individuals in the constituency by sharing their stories via their channels.
