Surrey Mirror Heart of the Community Awards

On Thursday evening I had the enormous privilege of presenting prizes at the Surrey Mirror Heart of the Community awards. This prestigious event recognised the achievements of outstanding groups from across our community. From the Surrey East Girlguides through to the organising committee of Caterham Festival, the event showcased an extraordinary range of fantastic local causes. In an age where it has become fashionable to say that community is breaking down, events like this serve as a reminder that there are so many people working tirelessly to make our local area what it is, and it was great to play a part in celebrating their success.
