This year’s annual celebration of community work and volunteering marks the tenth anniversary since the awards scheme began in 2003. From charity fundraisers to local football club managers, sports coaches and arts festival organisers, South Gloucestershire Council has honoured the dedication and commitment of hundreds of unsung heroes across the district.

Chairman of South Gloucestershire Council Cllr Janet Biggin said: “With the community spirit shown over the past year during the Olympics, Paralympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, I am anticipating a large number of nominations for the annual Chair’s Community Awards. From people who organised street parties for the jubilee to those who took the time to decorate their houses along the Olympic torch route in South Gloucestershire, I am really looking forward to seeing this year’s nominations so please nominate an unsung hero today.”
