Is there someone in Broadland who is the heart of the community and deserves special recognition?
Now is the opportunity to celebrate those people as nominations for the annual Broadland Community at Heart Awards are open.
The awards, which are in their third year, were launched by Broadland District Council leader Andrew Proctor and council chief executive Phil Kirby, along with John Warren, Alice Marshall-Chalk and Chris Vines of Price Bailey, the main sponsors of the Broadland Community at Heart Awards 2017.
The Broadland Community at Heart Awards reward those in the district who have gone above and beyond what is expected of them to improve the lives of those around them.
Previous finalists and winners have included school groups, litter pickers, Scout and Guide leaders, sportspeople, teaching assistants, devoted friends and community choirs.

Finalists will be chosen for each of the 10 award categories, who will then be invited to an awards ceremony in October.
Mr Proctor said: 'We know there are many individual residents and groups in Broadland who work hard to give something to their community and these people often go unnoticed. Although they do not seek recognition or reward I hope that these awards will give people the chance to say thank you to those who have helped them and made a difference in their lives.'
