Have you nominated your North Herts Hero yet?

If you know someone special in your community who has gone above and beyond and made a real difference in the district of North Herts, please nominate them for a council award.

Sponsored by Willmott Dixon, Cala Homes and The Comet, North Herts Heroes will recognise those who have dedicated their life to helping others, anyone who has recently made a big impact on a person, family or group in the community, and those who have improved people’s health and wellbeing. There is also a green category for eco-warriors, and a Young Star award for an exceptional young person.

Whoever they are, we want to hear about them – the deadline for nominations is 8 January, ahead of the ceremony in early March. Please seek permission from the person you are nominating. They don’t have to live in the district but the work they carry out must largely benefit residents of North Herts.

Cllr Sam North, Chair of the Council, said: “Recognising North Herts Heroes is a fantastic way for the council to thank and show appreciation of some of the special people in the district who go out of their way to help others and make a difference. We know people don’t do it for the glory, but it’s important for the community to acknowledge their contribution, and it inspires others to think about how they may also help others. Last year’s winners blew us away, I can’t wait to read your nominations and meet with winners next year.”

The award categories are:

Young Star Award (19 or under)

Do you know a young person who has contributed to their community, inspired others or given back? Someone who has transformed their own life, overcome challenges to reach their goal or positively impacted the lives of others? Let’s give them the recognition they deserve!

Health Award

Has one of your friends shared healthy recipes or started a walking club? Has a PE teacher gone above and beyond their usual role? Does someone spring to mind who has really supported others to get their mental health back on track? We’d love to celebrate them.

Green Award

Has a person or group made the community a better place to live? Has someone been key in organising litter picks, gardening projects, tree planting, walking buses or community recycling drives?  This award is for them.

Caring Award

Do you know someone who has really gone the extra mile over the past year? Maybe someone has helped do your shopping week in, week out, supported you through a tough time or gone above and beyond for the community. Help us celebrate them.

Dedication Award

You might know someone who has dedicated their time on a regular basis for many years to help their community, the sort of person who is just always there to help out, come rain or shine. This is the sort of person we are looking to celebrate with this award.
