Thousands of people do extraordinary work in our community to make it the place it is, many of whom going about their business quietly and never letting on about their efforts. I think it is time people like these are celebrated for the fantastic work that they do, and I am starting a scheme that will try to honour as many of them as possible.
Please nominate a leading light in North East Derbyshire and let me know who they are and why they deserve recognition. It can be anybody who makes a difference, large or small.
Every month we will then choose a Community Champion and to try to give a little something back to the people who give the most.
To nominate somebody please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
