How did the Pride of Andover Awards begin?
The Pride of Andover Awards have been celebrating those who quietly make a difference to other peoples’ lives since 2007.
Inspired by journalist Dick Bellringer of the Andover Advertiser and with the help of numerous local businesses and media partners, so far we have awarded a Pride of Andover Award to more than 100 local people!
The journalist and TV presenter has commented about the community spirit of Andover and the extraordinary people she has met over the years.
“You should know you have a town to be proud of with outstanding citizens who really do care for each other,” Esther told a packed audience at The Lights in 2012.
For 2017 we are excited to have Katie Piper as our new presenter.
