The efforts of local leaders has been celebrated as the shortlist for the Lichfield Live Community Awards was unveiled.
The category for Best Leadership is sponsored by Secura Labels.
It attracted a large number of nominations and the task of whittling them down to a shortlist proved extremely difficult, said chair of judges Paul Groves.
“We had nominations from those you might expect who already occupy high profile positions within our community.
“But we also received significant nominations for individuals who might not be in the spotlight but who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to support and help the wider community.”Paul Groves
The shortlist included:
- Central England Co-op and Lichfield District Council
- Darren Ennis
- Doug Pullen
- James Flintham
- David Clarke
- Sue Woodward
The winner will be revealed at the inaugural Lichfield Live Community Awards during a special online ceremony on 18th September.
