THE PRIDE Of Bucks Awards 2015 has been of­fi­cially launched to­day (Thurs­day).

The glitzy cer­e­mony, hosted by the Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­ver­tiser and Ex­am­iner Se­ries and our web­site get­bucks.co.uk, will once again take place at the glam­orous Stoke Park in Stoke Po­ges. This year’s event will take place on Mon­day, June 29.

Since the in­au­gu­ral event in 2013, Pride of Bucks has gone from strength to strength. It has given us great plea­sure to pro­vide an army of un­sung he­roes with the thanks and recog­ni­tion they richly de­serve.

But there is one thing miss­ing from this year’s event – you.

We could not host this event with­out your help. We need our loyal read­ers to tell us about the peo­ple out there who de­serve an award for what they do. We all know com­mu­nity he­roes – from the post­man who goes the ex­tra mile to help an el­derly cus­tomer to the youth worker who goes above and be­yond the call of duty to brighten the lives of those around them.

This re­ally is your Pride of Bucks Awards and what bet­ter op­por­tu­nity to nom­i­nate that spe­cial some­one so we can all thank them prop­erly for help­ing to make Bucks such a spe­cial place in which to live, work and visit.

Simon Ed­g­ley, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of get­bucks and the Ad­ver­tiser and Ex­am­iner said: “This will be the third year that we have run the Pride of Bucks Awards and we con­tinue to be blown away by its suc­cess.

“We’ve recog­nised some amaz­ing in­di­vid­u­als over the past cou­ple of years and 2015 will be no dif­fer­ent.

“There are so many peo­ple out there who work tire­lessly in their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and richly de­serve the recog­ni­tion that th­ese awards bring, so get nom­i­nat­ing to­day so we can make this sum­mer’s event the best ever.”
