Time to honour our unsung community heroes

IT’S time for you to put forward your heroes for our community awards.

We launched our New Year Honours Awards for 2012 last week and want you to nominate our unsung stars.

Many people across the town work tirelessly for the benefit of others and we are giving you the chance to name those you believe deserve special recognition.

There is no age limit to those you can nominate and their good deeds can be anything from helping at a local club, encouraging eco-campaigns and raising funds for charity to fetching the shopping for a neighbour or caring for a sick relative.

If you know someone who has gone the extra mile for the community – let us know.

To nominate your heroes fill out this coupon and send it to New Year Honours 2012, Ilkeston Advertiser, 8 Heanor Road, Ilkeston, DE7 8ER. Nominations must be in by Monday, December 24.

Once we have our winners we will be holding a simple ceremony highlighting the work they do and will present them with certificates.

Following the presentation ceremony we will be printing a full list of award winners and pictures from the event.
