He said: “It was great to see so many people submit nominations, and to find some worthy winners after another challenging year for the community.

“I’m excited to be joined by Trish and David who will make this an extra special event.

“The event will last about an hour, and I hope people can tune in and show their support for those who have done so much for our community – and deserve recognition for their efforts.”

Nominations were submitted for individuals, community groups, teams (like those carrying out a public service), and businesses.
