The Pride of Andover Awards team has announced that it will once again have the backing of local music venue The Rock House, supporting and sponsoring this year’s Arts Award category.

The award celebrates the importance of arts in the community and recognises someone who has been truly inspiring in the world of music, art, dance, or theatre, and who has made an impact on their community. 

Meanwhile, it has been announced that The Carpet Cleaning Lady will this year sponsor the Fundraiser Award. 

The Fundraiser Award is one of the Pride of Andover’s most popular categories, and serves to celebrate an individual or group who has raised funds for an individual, group or organisation in need of support, recognising those who have made a positive difference to Andover, however small.

The Pride of Andover Awards are sponsored by local businesses within Andover, with David Mellor Family Jewellers as the awards' main sponsors. 

The varied awards categories at The Pride of Andover Awards have been created to celebrate individuals and community groups volunteering their free time to make Andover a great place to be. 

The Pride of Andover Awards exists to shed light on these unsung heroes - endorsing the inspiring and often selfless actions of Andover’s most generous individuals, and promoting a sense of pride in the town.
