Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

WE have been ab­so­lutely as­tounded by the num­ber and the va­ri­ety of en­tries to this year’s Pride of Bucks awards.

It just goes to prove what ex­cep­tional peo­ple we have liv­ing in our com­mu­ni­ties.

From the emer­gency ser­vice work­ers who are trained to of­fer as­sis­tance when peo­ple need it the most to the enor­mous num­bers of peo­ple who give up their free time to help oth­ers or the com­mu­nity, the stan­dard of en­tries has been so very high.

Sadly, not ev­ery­one can win an award and those who have not re­ceived an in­vi­ta­tion to at­tend Mon­day’s awards cer­e­mony at Stoke Park have not been suc­cess­ful this year. But we would like to pay trib­ute to you all and thank you sin­cerely for the ef­forts you go to in or­der to help make our com­mu­ni­ties won­der­ful places in which to live and work or reach out to peo­ple who need help.

We would also like to thank all those peo­ple who took the time to sub­mit a nom­i­na­tion.

We are ex­tremely grate­ful and are sure you will agree that the task of se­lect­ing our win­ners was al­ways go­ing to be a dif­fi­cult one.

Our win­ners will be an­nounced at the cer­e­mony on Mon­day – don’t miss our spe­cial sup­ple­ment in next week’s pa­per.

You can keep up with events through­out the day on Mon­day by vis­it­ing www.get­bucks.co.uk where we will be bring­ing you live cov­er­age through­out the event.

The Pride of Bucks awards high­light all that is good about our com­mu­ni­ties and we could not run it with­out you.

Thank you!

MAK­ING US PROUD: This year’s Pride Of Bucks awards cer­e­mony takes place on Mon­day – among last year’s en­ter­tain­ers were the Polka Dots
