DO you know someone who is making a difference to the lives of others and deserves some recognition?

This is your final chance to tell us about the unsung heroes in our area and nominate them in the Herald & Gazette Community Stars awards.

The winners in this year’s awards, which will be held at the Worthing Dome on Thursday, November 13, will get a trophy and a cash prize.

In this week’s paper, you will find a nomination form which you can pop in the post to us, drop into our offices in Chatsworth Road, Worthing – or you can email a nomination. We need them in by Monday, October 13, at noon.

The categories you can nominate in are as follows – Carer of the Year, Star of the Community, True Inspiration, Best Volunteer, Charity of the Year, Best Friend, Health Hero, School Star, Mini Marvel, Sporting Achievement, Best Community Event, Arts and Entertainment, Super Senior and The 999 Award.

Over the years, there have been some brilliant winners – as voted for by Herald & Gazette readers. Now is your chance to help us find some of the people who go above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference.

Do you have an amazing carer or know a selfless volunteer? Have you been inspired by a community champion or have a best friend like no other?

Are you a teacher who has a student who has overcome difficulties to triumph at school or do you know a youngster who has impressed beyond their years?

There are so many heroes in our community who hide away from the limelight – but it’s time people knew just how special they are.

Turn to page 68, fill in the nomination form and send it to us! There are more details in this week’s paper.

Also in the paper this week, out tomorrow priced 80p, is the chance to vote in our Cute Kids contest.

There’s also dozens of pages of news, views, nostalgia, entertainment, business and sport.
