This week we reveal our shortlist of nominees for this year’s Guardian Rose Awards.
Every year The Guardian Rose Awards goes from strength to strength and it is now a well established event on the Worksop calendar.
As Editor of the Guardian it brings me great pride to be involved with these awards.
There are so many unsung heroes in the local community and the Rose awards are a great way of giving them the recognition they truly deserve.
Nearly every week this year we have featured some great stories of local people who are making a real difference.
Many of these stories have been very moving and have provided unequivocal evidence that for
every bad thing that happens in Worksop, there are dozens of good things happening.
The Guardian Rose Awards categories are set up to cover people from all walks of life.
To see the first half of our Guardian Rose shortlist, and to find out how to vote turn to pages 16 and 17.
See next week’s Guardian for the shortlist for the remaining six categories.
