Telford Community Pride finalists announced
Telford & Wrekin Council has announced a shortlist of individuals, groups and businesses who will appear in the town's Community Pride Award final.
The prestigious award ceremony, which will be held on November 29, aims to recognise all those who make a difference in local communities.
The awards form part of Telford & Wrekin Council’s 50th anniversary celebrations and the council's Pride in Our Community project.
Councillor Shaun Davies, leader of Telford & Wrekin Council, said: "We have received so many nominations for the amazing work that’s going on right across the borough.
“It’s been a really tough job drawing up a shortlist from so many entries. As such, four nominees have been shortlisted in each category.
“We want to make their stories known and celebrated. I hope that by shining a light on the huge array of great work going on here, much of it voluntarily, we can inspire others to make a difference for Telford’s next 50 years.”
Nominations from the public were sought in a variety of categories, from good neighbours to best environmental champion, from sporting achievement to outstanding volunteer, and from best community support group to companies that give something back.
More than 300 nominations have been received for the various award categories – with four finalists being shortlisted in each category.
Telford & Wrekin Council said they are grateful to all the sponsors, who made the event possible.
