New awards to honour local heroes
Outstanding Radstock residents who have made a positive difference to the community are to be honoured by the town council.

The initiative is the brainchild of Radstock town council chairwoman Lesley Mansell.

Miss Mansell said: "The council wishes to recognise the contribution residents make which often goes unnoticed as we want to show that their contribution is valued.
"We want to make this award annually and hope this will be the first for many years to come. "
The winner will be announced at a special ceremony due to be held in October when everyone nominated for an award will be invited to attend with the people who proposed them.
All those nominated will receive a certificate of recognition.
Chairman of the town council's working party for Celebrating Radstock, councillor Gael Doswell said: "We're very excited about the chance to reward Radstock citizens who have made our town a better place to live."
