Standing up for our community
Ordinary people doing extraordinary things for their local neighbourhoods are honoured every year in our Community Pride Awards ceremony. The awards recognise the community spirit and drive of the people of our borough when it comes to making the most of their neighbourhoods. The judging panel is presided by the Mayor and includes delegates from Police, Fire Brigade and local communities. The awards are handed out in eight categories, including Bringing your neighbourhood together, Best Community Garden, Best Food Growing Project and Resident of the Year. Cllr Lib Peck, Lambeth council leader, says: "The Community Pride awards are a real highlight of Lambeth’s calendar because they showcase the sheer range and extent of activity going on in every corner of our dynamic borough. It is a pleasure to see people's joy at being honoured with an award, to hear all their fascinating stories and to share their passion for making Lambeth a great place to live."
