John and Jenny Kitchen were nominated for supporting their community from helping a gravely ill neighbour to supporting four footed friends.

"Nothing is too much trouble for John and Jenny."

That's how Julie Morris who put them forward for the accolade at the Spire FM Local Hero Awards has described the couple.

The pair have helped a neighbour battling illness, helping his partner clear out his home after he died and event giving a loving home to one of his dogs.

They also took in a son of a friend who was having difficulties running him to school and his weekend job.

John and Jenny also helped run Hale Market in the next village.

Jenny accepted the award on behalf of her and her husband in front of 150 people at the Stones Hotel on Friday night (18th Friday).
