Acclaim for local heroes

I’ve been overwhelmed by the amazing work going on in our local community over the last few difficult months. Like many people, I found the first days and weeks of lockdown a challenge, as we had to adapt our business from face to face appointments to working from home and video calls with clients, but seeing local people working to help and support each other has really been a boost.

So I wanted to show my appreciation and reward those local heroes who have lifted all our spirits recently and I need your help to make sure we capture those most deserving of recognition.

Please nominate those who you consider to be local heroes based on their community efforts in Balsall Common over the last few months. This could be volunteering, adaptations to business, providing useful services, sharing helpful information or something else that has benefited the Balsall Common community. You tell us what makes the person you are nominating deserving.

I love being part of the local business community and have worked with other local companies to form a judging panel and organise the prizes.

A panel of judges including myself, Claire Turner of Wow! Signal Communications, Carl Hemming from Ginger Estate Agents, Amanda Cruxton-Chance of Flourish and Alice Houghton from the Saracens Head, will select their top three community heroes from all those nominated to win prizes.  The prizes include a three-course meal for two (excluding steaks) at the Saracens Head and a tapas meal for two at La Delicia.

The deadline for nominations is Wednesday 30 September.
