Willow Brook Centre, Bradley Stoke Journal and Hilton Hotel officially launched the awards with a call for entries last month. A double page spread in the March edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine (pages 28 & 29), out this weekend, gives details of the eight award categories and provides a nomination form.

The categories are: Star Teacher, Pre-School Carer of the Year, Achievement Against the Odds, Young Hero, Champion Carer, Parent/Guardian in a Million, Good Neighbour of the Year and Unsung Hero.

Nominations, which close on 9th April, may also be made online via the dedicated Stars of the Stokes website.

The awards evening will take place in May at a Black Tie event held at the Hilton Hotel in Woodlands Lane, Bradley Stoke.

Willow Brook centre manager Andy Wynn said:

“We are all very excited to be working on these awards to help recognise some of the great individual community contributions locally. We are looking forward to seeing the entries and recognising the winners in May.”
