© Pride of Redditch
This year's Pride of Redditch was very special. Not only thanks to those who made nominations and the people and business who are working to make this town a better place to live. Also those who supported the concept and helped to improve the celebrations above and beyond last years.
Whether it was local businesses sponsoring group awards, giving their services for free or at a cut price. Or the people who gave their time to ensure we could recognise our unsung heroes. Without them I couldn't have brought so many good people together to show them our gratitude for what they do for the benefit of others.
Our judges Affy Qadeer, Corinne Seabridge and Ian Joseph who had an unenviable job choosing between the superb nominations. Our Patron Madge Tillsley who has been involved from the start, adds something no one else can!
And not forgetting:
an extra thank you must be said to the Redditch Standard for supporting Pride of Redditch for the second year and certainly going the extra mile.
All of this incredible support for our town and the people in it makes me confident that we are raising the sense of pride in Redditch and Pride of Redditch 2015 will go ahead!
