About the Awards

We all know Ely and the surrounding villages are great places to live and work. We wanted to shine a light on the heroes in our wonderful community who are the most compassionate, determined, honourable, kind, supportive and brave - an inspiration to us all. Reflecting the spirit of this, the idea of the very first Ely Hero Awards was born in 2017.

This inaugral event was the brainchild of Naomi Sherwood, Business Development Manager of Xpert Resoucing, with a fabulous team in support; Infiniti Graphics as co-organisers and designers, Sadie Finch Virtual Assistant helping with all admin and collating of the nominations, and The Ely Standard Newspaper as the media partner.
