Nominations are now open for this year's Wisbech Unsung Heroes Awards
It’s time to get nominating your Wisbech Unsung Heroes for this year’s awards.
Wisbech Town Council is running the Wisbech Unsung Heroes Awards with support from the Fenland Citizen and the aim is to recognise those townspeople who go the extra mile for their community.
There are seven categories and a panel of judges will choose the winners in each.
All those shortlisted will be invited to a presentation evening on April 12 at 7pm at St Peter’s Church Hall, Wisbech, where the winners will be announced.
So, if you know someone who deserves recognition, why not nominate them – either by writing all the details: Your name, name of the person you are nominating, contact details for both you and your hero, and a short piece explaining why you have nominated them for whichever award you have chosen and post it to Wisbech Town Council, North Brink, Wisbech or email the same information to email@example.com
