We are pleased to announce that the nominations for the Pride of Andover Awards 2015 are officially open.
The annual opportunity for the people of Andover to nominate a positive role model or community group is open from July 1 and nominations are being taken for a month.
The Pride of Andover Awards, sponsored by David Mellor Family Jewellers, are accepting nominations by post, using brochures distributed around Andover, or via their website www.prideofandoverawards.org.uk.
The awards scheme celebrates the outstanding achievements of the town’s unsung heroes; the people living or working in Andover who are quietly making such a difference to so many lives.
“We are thrilled to be able to finally accept nominations for selfless and inspirational people in our community and look forward to reading those who do extraordinary work in Andover,” says Karen Hamilton, Chairman of The Pride of Andover Awards.
“The Pride of Andover Awards is a great way to say ‘thank you’ to citizens who demonstrate dedication, devotion and bravery from everyone living or working in the local area,” Karen adds.
Nominees can choose from a comprehensive range of categories, most of which have been sponsored by generous local businesses. These are Simplyhealth, KP Safety Solutions Ltd, Andover IT, The Breeze Radio and The Andover Gazette. Details of each of these categories and their sponsors can be found via the scheme’s website.
The winner of each category will be automatically shortlisted for the Spirit of Andover Award, which is sponsored by the award scheme’s main sponsors, David Mellor Family Jewellers. The title recognises an individual or group who really have gone above and beyond to give something back to the local community.
All finalists will be invited to a glitzy presentation evening on the 2 November, which will be hosted by celebrity supporter Dame Esther Rantzen.
The Pride of Andover Awards are still actively looking for two companies to sponsor The Heart of Gold and the Teacher of the Year Award, and also welcome any event sponsors.
