Celebrating Hertford Heroes!
Whilst the pandemic has been aweful for so many, through the doom and gloom rays of community positivity shone ever brigher. At I Love Hertford we celebrate the best of Hertford and through these tough times “the best” of Hertford really delivered.
I wanted a way of recognising those who have made a difference over the past year. The obvious answer made itself known when a member got in touch to tell me about about Klinton, who operates the gate at a local new housing development…
“Have you seen the smiley man?” the message read. “He always smiles and waves to us every day …he deserves a medal!” Of course I knew exacty who the member meant and I absolutley agreed with them, he did deserve a medal. I posted about Klinton and the post gathered over 1000 likes just like that. Klinton has really made a difference to local peoples day with just a simple smile and wave.
Knowing that there must be more awesome local people who have made a difference I asked the I Love Hertford community to nominate. The I Love Hertford Community Awards were born. Not a glitzy, look at me ceremony. More a genuine “thank you” from the community for thier efforts and positivity.
I could have given out many, many more awards but settled on these 9 based on feedback recieved from the local community.
