A new sponsor is on board to highlight the work of unsung heroes in the county,
Arch – The Northumberland Development Company – has signed up to sponsor the long-standing awards scheme that aims to honour the county’s unsung heroes.
Arch Group is backing the 2013 Pride of Northumberland Awards, which celebrate the extraordinary achievements of ordinary people from right across the county.
Arch has a county-wide remit to deliver development and regeneration and to attract investment.
The organisation brings together services in housing, commercial property, physical regeneration and business growth.
Owned by the county council, Arch has a focus on economic growth designed to bring a more enterprising and business-like approach to development and regeneration in Northumberland.
Dave Ledger, Arch Group chairman and deputy leader of Northumberland County Council, said: “Arch is Northumberland’s largest private residential landlord, as such we have strong relationships with communities across Northumberland, we’re pleased to be able to help recognise the many achievements of the people and community groups that live and work here.
“The awards show the stories of local people whose valuable work contributes so much to the quality of life within the county.”
There are ten different categories in which you can enter your nomination including the good neighbour award, which is new for this year, community champion, role model, child of courage and community group.
To put someone forward for an award, fill in the form below and send it to Dawn Owens, Pride Of Northumberland, 17 Newgate Street, Morpeth N61 1AW, or go online at www.northumberlandgazette.co.uk – the closing date for entries is Friday, August 16.
