11 worthy winners collected trophies for being the unsung heroes in our community.

In it's 15th year, the Local Hero Awards (sponsored by the Storage Factory) yet again recognised those unsung heroes around South Wiltshire and West Hampshire.

The judges faced a tough challenge of sifting through the nominations to pick the 11 worthy winners out of hundreds of entries.

The awards recognised the life-savers, selfless volunteers, fearless youngsters, inspirational teachers, devoted parents and unsung people who make a real difference. Each of them is a truly extraordinary person. They are the reason why this area is such a special place to live.

It took place at The Stones Hotel at the Highpost and was hosted by Spire FM's Martin Starke and Henrietta Creasey.

There were tears, there was laughter and there was fabulous food but mainly there was appreciation from everyone in the room towards the winners.
