Ely Hero Awards

For the second year running, The Elyi magazine is proud to be sponsoring the “Neighbour of the Year” category at the Ely Hero Awards which are taking place on the 25th June 2018. Our very own Madeleine Funnell is also on the judging panel this year.

The Ely Hero Awards were set up to recognise and honour those people in the local Ely community who are the most compassionate, determined, honourable, kind and supportive – the real unsung heroes of the local community. The awards highlight and celebrate these individuals and the amazing work they do within the community.

We told you this in the last issue but just as another reminder, there are 10 different award categories and nominees can be of any age, any walk of life, the only stipulation is they are to be inspiring to others and they must live or work within Ely and the surrounding villages.

The categories include:

• Smiliest Server

• Colleague of the Year

• Caring Companion

• Most Amazing Professional

• Neighbour of the Year

• Community Champion

• Best Teacher

• Child of Achievement

• Sporting Hero

• The Ely Hero Award

If you would like to nominate someone for the Ely Hero Awards, this can be made via the website: There will also be entry via a coupon in the Ely Standard.

Closing date for entries: 20th April
