Heart of the Community awards

About these awards


It's time to celebrate community spirit and say a big thank you to the people who make Northampton a great place to live!

The Heart of the Community awards give us a chance to celebrate community spirit, recognise neighbourhood achievement and say a big thank you, so if you know a person or group that fits the bill, we encourage you to submit a nomination.

Nominations are now open

In 500 words or less, let us know what makes your nominee a star of your community. Nominations will close on Friday 12 April 2019.

You can also send us your nomination through the post:

The nomination process

All nominations are considered by a panel of independent judges and a number of winners are selected.

We then notify the winners and invite them to a special celebration event at the Guildhall where they can collect their award from the Mayor of Northampton.
