Nominations open for Mayor’s Heart of the Community Awards

Nominations are now open for the Mayor’s Heart of the Community Awards 2022.

The awards are to be held by Northampton Town Council at the Rotary Showcase event, “One Hundred Not Out”, on Saturday 5th March, at the Northamptonshire County Cricket Ground.

After an incredibly tough couple of years, the Heart of the Community Awards aims to highlight the hard work and achievements of the people living in Northampton who strive to make a difference in their local community.

With recent local Government changes and of course the pandemic, the Awards have sadly been delayed since 2019. This year the Mayor, Cllr Rufia Ashraf, alongside her independent panel of judges is excited to learn of the great achievements of the people of Northampton and is looking forward to selecting the winners and presenting the awards at this year’s event.

The Rotary “One Hundred Not Out” Showcase is a fun day out for the whole family, hosting numerous local charities, food stalls and musical entertainers throughout the day, with the Awards ceremony bringing the day’s activities to a close.

Northampton Town Mayor, Cllr Rufia Ashraf said, “I am absolutely delighted to be able to congratulate some of our local heroes in person at this event. I know people have struggled, so to hear of our local champions is always a great pleasure. I’m really keen to hear people’s stories and to let those stories inspire others”

Brian May, from Northampton’s Rotary Club said, “We are so excited to be able to host our showcase event, to provide exposure for the local charities who do so much work and on top of this to be able to award some”
