Nominations for the Our Heroes awards have now ended.

Keep an eye out for the shortlist coming very soon!


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 areas.

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?
