Published 27 August 2015

You can now vote for Wakefield’s community heroes to get the recognition they deserve, as part of WDH’s Love Where You Live Awards 2015.

Good neighbours, community groups and green heroes who make a positive difference in their neighbourhoods are being honoured in WDH’s fourth Love Where You Live Awards, with the winners decided entirely by public vote on our dedicated website www.lovewhereyouliveawards.co.uk

There are buttons to help you vote quickly and easily. If you need help to access the website, contact 01977 724669.

This year the contest will again feature eight categories:

  • Young Achiever
  • Good Neighbour
  • Best Neighbourhood
  • Green Hero
  • Working with Young People
  • Working with Older People
  • Community Group
  • Best Garden

The winner in each group will receive £500 to donate to a community group of their choice thanks to our sponsors Sodexo.

WDH Chief Executive Kevin Dodd said, “Our Love Where You Live Awards are a community-wide celebration of people who make this a district to be proud of and they become more successful every year.

“A great deal of hard work goes on across the district to make our communities better places to live. Local people are at the heart of this, and our Love Where You Live Awards reward this work.”

The voting for the finalists is now open. You can place your votes for good neighbours and inspirational individuals on the dedicated website, www.lovewhereyouliveawards.co.uk, which has information on each finalist. 

Voting will close at 9 am on Monday 28th September 2015 and the winners will be announced at the Love Where You Live 2015 Awards event in October.
