Local Hero Awards

We're looking to you to help us find the unsung heroes in South Wiltshire and West Hampshire.

The nomination process is now open. Please get your votes to us as soon as you can, telling us exactly what makes your Local Hero so special.

Perhaps it’s someone who gives up their time to help others, or someone who has triumphed in the face of adversity. Or maybe you know of someone who has achieved in the world of sport, shown phenomenal bravery or who has gone beyond the call of duty as a member of the emergency services or as a teacher?

Our full list of available categories is below, please use the form at the bottom of the page and nominate now...
