Here is the full list of winners for the Milton Keynes Local Heroes Awards 2021, nominated by you and chosen by the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Milton Keynes, and Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire Countess Howe.
In March 2021, the Mayor of Milton Keynes Andrew Geary called on local residents to nominate those people who have made an impact in our community for the Milton Keynes Local Heroes Awards 2021.
This year’s awards focused on those who’ve made a contribution relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, but was not exclusively aimed at that. Nominations for the awards were open to anyone, individuals or community groups who have gone the extra mile and selflessly stepped up to help others and made a real difference.
After receiving so many shining examples of individuals and groups who’ve put others before themselves, and countless hours on video calls for the judging panel to deliberate between many deserving candidates, the winner's have now been announced.
Congratulations to the winners...
