We’re looking to honour area’s most dedicated youth leader

Have your say

Do you know a local person who deserves to be recognised for their hard work helping the youth of South Holland?

Nominations for the inaugural Dean Herd Memorial Prize are now open – and we have already had several.

The prize (including a trophy and cash) will be presented in June to a local community leader who has made a difference to local youngsters.

The prize is awarded in memory of youth pioneer Dean, who died in November, following a battle with cancer. The judges will consider nominations after the May 31 closing date and the winner will be announced in the Free Press in June.

Email your nomination to spaldingeditor@jpress.co.uk, saying in less than 100 words why you think they deserve to win.
