Leader of Broxbourne Council, Councillor Lewis Cocking said:
These awards serve as an important reminder of what being part of our community really is all about, and that together we can continue to enrich our local area, making it one to be exceptionally proud of. Picking just ten winners out of the hundreds of nominations received was a very difficult task and I would like to thank all those who nominated their local hero.
The awards were sponsored by Love Hoddesdon, Fishpools, VolkerWessels UK, CONAMAR, Sunset Studios, Liberata, B3Living, Inland Homes, SCC and Oxford Innovation Space.
