Pride of Stevenage Awards

Help us celebrate our local heroes - those wonderful people who give their time, passion and skills to help make Stevenage a great place to live, work and play.

The Pride of Stevenage Awards give you the chance to reward local people who help make life better for other people in Stevenage.

Our awards celebrate community spirit and are a big thank you to those people who make a real difference in our town.

If you know a person, group, team, business or other organisation that make great things happen in Stevenage, tell us. It only takes a minute to make a nomination and it could make someone’s day.

The Pride of Stevenage judges will choose the winners and they will be invited to receive their awards at a prestigious reception hosted by the Mayor.

Everyone nominated is invited to a special Pride of Stevenage tea with the Mayor at Christmas.

Nominations closed on 10 August.
