Community Hero Nominations

This year marks a milestone for the Council, as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.

In honour of our golden year, we are celebrating the people that make our District a great place to be. Our Chairman is hosting a special thank you tea party at Warnham Local Nature Reserve for your Community Heroes on Thursday 20 June.

Residents can also enjoy a selection of 70s music performances and film showings, a special after-hours event at Horsham Museum & Art Gallery and a golden anniversary theme to our May half term activities.

Nominate your Community Hero

Vote for your Community Hero

Our community is full of great people. If you know a Community Hero we want to hear about them.

Do you know someone who deserves a special thank you for making your neighbourhood a better place to live?

They could be a friendly face at your local store, a postie who goes the extra mile, a neighbour who is there when you most need them, a carer who goes above and beyond, a super sports coach, a litter picker keeping your street tidy, a fantastic youth leader or a volunteer driver.

From individual impact to people with a tireless drive to serve your community we want to say thank you the everyday heroes of the District.

Nominate your local hero by 5pm on Monday 1 May 2024:
