“First launched in 2004, these awards recognise and reward the individual excellence and team achievement that takes place in our community.

“The awards enable us to honour and publically thank
those people who work tirelessly ‘behind the scenes’ as unsung heroes.

“There are so many people doing great things in our district and it is important we recognise their achievements.

“I’m looking forward to seeing which local heroes we can uncover this time round.”
