NOMINATIONS are now open for the awards which recognise Andover’s unsung heroes.

Now in its 13th year, the Pride of Andover Awards 2019 is giving people the chance to shout about those who deserve to be celebrated.

Event organisers are asking the people of Andover to celebrate the town’s otherwise unsung heroes; volunteers, community champions, and anyone who gives their time and energy to the community.

There are nine categories to nominate people for, sponsored by 11 businesses across the town.

The awards overall winner will hold the title for the Spirit of Andover category.

Christine Mellor, of David Mellor Family Jewellers, said of the award: “At David Mellor Family Jewellers, our community is incredibly important to us, so to be able to sponsor the Pride of Andover Awards, particularly this category, for another exceptional year is something we feel very passionate about; a thriving community is made up of proactive, selfless people, and the Spirit of Andover Award recognises this.”
