UNSUNG heroes are being sought by Corsham Town Council for its annual community awards.

The council is looking for nominations from the local community before the awards deadline of Friday, March 6.

The council says: "Who's your local champion? Why not nominate an unsung hero who makes our town a better place?"

Steve Abbot, the chairman of Corsham Town Council, said: "We are keen for all of the community groups to put forward their nominations.

"These could come from groups of all sorts, including those for elderly people and the sports clubs and voluntary groups.

"We want to hear about people who give a lot of their time and energy for the benefit of the town so that we can recognise their efforts."

Nomination forms and further details can be obtained from Corsham Town Hall, by calling 01249 702130, or by visiting www.corsham.gov.uk.

Winners will be presented with their awards at the Corsham Celebrates event, incorporating the annual town meeting, on Thursday, April 23, from 7 for 7.30pm.
