With the highly anticipated Pride of Andover awards set to return for 2021, this year’s event is set to be greater than ever. The overall winner of the awards will win the sought-after Spirit of Andover award sponsored by the events’ main sponsor, David Mellor Family Jewellers.

The award recognises an individual or group who have gone above and beyond, and whose achievements and work in the local community have been far reaching.

Christine Mellor of David Mellor Family Jewellers said of sponsoring the 2021 event: “We’re delighted to be main sponsors of The Pride of Andover Awards once again. As a local business, our community is incredibly important to us. We want to celebrate everything that makes Andover a wonderful place to live; namely, the selfless individuals who volunteer their time and energy, going out of their way to support others, and inspiring everyone who’s lives they touch to achieve great things for the good of our town.

To be able to sponsor the Pride of Andover awards, particularly this category for another exceptional year is something we feel very passionate about. A thriving community is made up of proactive, selfless people and the Spirit of Andover Award recognises this.”

The Pride of Andover Awards will officially launch on 26th June with an incredible 11 awards categories available.

Nominations for the Pride of Andover Awards 2021 will open on the website on 1st July, closing at midnight on 31st August. Nominations from 2020’s postponed awards will also be included in this year’s judging alongside 2021 applications.

The Pride of Andover Awards honours the town’s exceptional unsung heroes – recognising the inspiring and often selfless actions of Andover’s most generous individuals, the people who make such a big difference to so many lives but who are so often ‘just getting on with it’.
