Nominate a local hero

Local heroes across Wigan Borough will be recognised at an awards ceremony in June – and now is your chance to nominate someone you think deserves recognition.

The Our Town awards, run by Wigan Council, will celebrate all those who go above and beyond to make their neighbourhood a better place. The awards were postponed due to Covid-19 but now, in response to the extraordinary lengths individuals and community groups have gone to during the pandemic, a new ‘Covid-19 superheroes’ category has been added.

So, who do you know that deserves a Local Hero Award?

If you know someone here in Lowton or Golborne who always goes the extra mile for people in their community, why not say thank you by nominating them for these awards? It’s a great way to give a little something back, and shine a spotlight on those people that our towns can be truly proud of.

How do I nominate?

You hve until midnight on Sunday 25 April to submit an online nomination. Submit your online nomination now.

The awards ceremony will be held virtually during Volunteer Week, which takes place from 1-7 June. Further details will be announced following the closing date.
