From a school teacher who has transformed your life, to a doctor who may have saved it, communities up and down the country are full of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
To mark the 22nd census of England and Wales – which will be held on 21 March 2021 – we will be awarding 22 local heroes bespoke purple plaques to honour and celebrate the achievements of people who have gone the extra mile for their neighbourhoods; one plaque for every census so far.
The plaques will be installed on the buildings which best represent the endeavours of an individual or group for their community – be it a hospital, a school, a library or a community’s sports hub.
You have until 31st December 2020 to nominate your community’s unsung hero. Winners will be announced in March.
