More than 100 nominations have flooded in for this year’s WDH Love Where You Live Awards – with a prize of £500 for each of the eight winners to give to a community group of their choice.
The awards give tenants, residents and community groups the chance to reward their local community heroes for the hard work they put in to make the Wakefield district a better place to live.
This year the contest will be even bigger and better than before thanks to our sponsors Wolseley Integrated Services, a specialist division of the plumbing, heating and building materials giant that works with housing associations and local authorities.
WDH Chief Executive Kevin Dodd said: “The Love Where You Live Awards have become an important part of our calendar. Many tenants, home owners and community groups get a great deal of pleasure from brightening up their surroundings and helping other people to enjoy life in their neighbourhoods.
“Our Love Where You Live Awards are a community-wide celebration of people who make this a district to be proud of.”
Judging will take place over the summer and a grand final will be held later in the year.
