Cheshire East Council will once again be the key sponsor at the Local Hero Awards organised by Silk 106.9.
For the first time in its 20 years, the glittering ceremony will take place in Crewe at the Crewe Hall Hotel, on Thursday, November 9.
The event is being run in partnership with Silk 106.9 and will recognise the achievements of Cheshire East residents in 11 categories, ranging from awards for an ‘act of courage’ to ‘carer of the year’.
The Mayor of Cheshire East, Councillor Arthur Moran, will also attend to present the winner with the Pride of Cheshire award.
Councillor Paul Bates, cabinet member for communities and health, said: “Recognising and celebrating the achievements in our communities in this way brings a lot of pride to our borough.
“At last year’s awards we were reminded of the bravery of our residents through the posthumous winner of our Pride of Cheshire award, which went to Tom Jackson, from Congleton. His selfless actions trying to defend a young girl from an attacker ultimately led to his untimely death – but such actions continue to remind us of the strength and courage of those within our very community.
“The community spirit in Cheshire East is as strong now as it has ever been, so I am looking forward to seeing many of our residents get some deserved recognition.”
Nominations for all the categories remain open until Sunday, October 22. You can put someone forward by visiting Silk 106.9’s website at:
