Our heroes 2018

Icon of the garden award Icon of the neighbour award Icon of the people award

Nominate the heroes from your community today. 

We work in great areas, serving fantastic communities with brilliant people. And we want to celebrate it. That’s why we’re launching our new awards – our heroes


Building on the success of our popular Acis In Bloom competition, we’ve widened the scope of our annual awards to recognise the people who are making a difference to their local area.

We’re looking for nominations across all of our areas, and we’ll be celebrating them at an awards ceremony in October.

This year, we’ll have three awards – and prizes – up for grabs for our heroes:


Garden Guru Award

Does someone you know take extra pride in their garden, allotment or open space?

Do you know someone who loves the outdoors and has done something amazing?


Wonderful Neighbour/Neighbourhood of the Year

Do you know anyone who has a kind heart and goes the extra mile for people? Or are a group of people rallying round to make a difference in your community?


Young Person/People of the Year Award

Do you know a young person or a group of young people (aged 24 or under) achieving great things? Are they doing something extraordinary, or deserve recognition for something?


This is your chance to nominate someone from your community. Tell us, in as much detail as possible, about what they’re doing and the impact they’re making.


The deadline for entries is 31 July 2018.
