Foreword by the Mayor of Merton
I am very happy to champion the Merton Community Awards because they recognise the hard work and dedication of the borough’s unsung heroes.
As the Mayor of Merton, I see first-hand the amazing and selfless things people do every day, often without recognition.
If you know a good neighbour, friend, family member, volunteer or colleague who are the backbone of your community or go the extra mile for other people, simply complete the short nomination form and ensure they receive the recognition they deserve.
Councillor Brenda Fraser
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.
