LDC Unsung Hero Award.

Please note, the presentation of the Unsung hero award has been suspended for the current year. The Agenda Committee look forward to the presentation of this Award returning in 2021.

The Agenda Committee has created a structure for the judging of the award, as well as some guidelines for nominations, and invite LDCs to consider if they wish to nominate. Please use the form provided via the link below, and return as instructed on the form.
