Foreword by the Mayor of Merton
The Merton Community Awards are an opportunity to thank the unsung heroes of our community who go above and beyond the call of duty to make Merton the great place it is, to live, work and learn.
Since becoming Mayor last May I have already met many amazing people, who do amazing things, every day from every corner of the borough.
It is a great honour to be the first citizen of the borough and have the privilege of meeting people who make an incredible contribution. If you know a good neighbour, friend, family member or colleague who are the backbone of your community, simply complete the short nomination form and ensure they receive the recognition they so truly deserve.
Councillor David Chung
Mayor of Merton
Foreword by the Wimbledon Guardian
I have been very proud to champion the amazing work that members of the Merton community do for the borough.
Almost every day at the Wimbledon Guardian, we hear about people working tirelessly, and often without recognition, to improve the lives of others, raise money for charity or go out of their way to help people less fortunate than themselves.
This unsung army of local heroes deserve recognition for what they do, which is why the Merton Community Awards are so important.
This is our fourth annual awards since launching in 2013 in partnership with the council. So if you know someone who is making a contribution to your community and deserves recognition, please nominate them for an award now.
