- Credit: copyright: Archant 2013
We are one step closer to celebrating the wonderful work that goes on in our county.
Nominations for the Stars of Norfolk Awards are now closed – and a staggering 242 nominations are ready for the judges' deliberation on Monday.
Tales of a tear jerking calibre have been sent in from across the county, and soon the EDP will honour the real heroes and heroines in our community.
In partnership with Norfolk County Council, district councils, the EDP and its many sister titles across Norfolk, honouring ordinary people and teams doing the extraordinary is even closer.
Carers, outstanding young people, sportsmen and women, those in the armed services, police, fire and the health service and more – there are so many people in Norfolk who deserve to shine.
