The judges chosen as the independent panel responsible for picking the winners were retired police inspector Ian Joseph, entrepreneur Affy Qadeer and Corinne Seabridge, territorial envoy for Redditch Salvation Army.
Mr Qadeer, who was also on last year’s judging panel, said: “It’s a huge honour and a privilege to be asked to be involved in the Pride of Redditch awards again. Everyone who was nominated last year deserved a medal for what they do and it was a tough task to choose the winners. I’m sure this year will be just as difficult.”
