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!
We have been honoured by presenters such as Dame Esther Rantzen, Katie Piper and this year Sally Taylor. Sally has presented South Today, the flagship news programme of BBC South, since 1987. Sally also writes a weekly column in the Southern Daily Echo.
