Broadland District Council’s Community at Heart Awards celebrate the selfless work and incredible achievements of residents across the district.

The awards, sponsored by Price Bailey, say thank you to community heroes, and acknowledge the valuable contribution of volunteers, businesses, individuals or community groups to the district.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Shaun Vincent said:

“There are so many incredible volunteers and community groups that go above and beyond in Broadland. I have seen first-hand that our community spirit has never been stronger and as a council we want to do all we can help this spirit continue to flourish.

“We want to hear about the amazing acts of kindness and generosity and all those who go the extra mile in our district so we can share their stories while celebrating and recognising their incredible work.

“Give your community some love and nominate today.”

John Warren, Partner of principal event sponsors Price Bailey said:

“I am really pleased that Price Bailey continue to sponsor the Broadland Community at Heart Awards for the fifth year.
