It’s that time of year again when The West Sussex County Times calls on its readers to celebrate all that is great about the community of the area it serves.

This week we are launching the Community Awards 2016 and are inviting your nominations for the 16 categories.

And it couldn’t be easier to nominate - simply complete the short {goo.gl/forms/LQJt70qnm0|online form|goo.gl/forms/LQJt70qnm0} or fill in the form on this page.

We want to hear about all those people and groups who have inspired you, helped you and gone that extra mile for their fellow man or woman.

Some of them may be well known organisations you want specially recognised for their exceptional work.

Last year, our winners included Best Community Organisation The Phoenix Stroke Club, the Charity of the Year St Catherine’s Hospice and Holbrook Animal Rescue, which took the Care for Animals Award,

Then there are those people we would never know about unless our readers highlight them to us.

Last year these included Paul Showell of Southwater Junior Academy, who took the Good Sport Award, and David Spreadbury-Troy, who won the Friend of the Environment Awards for his work at Ingfield Manor School. Another otherwise unsung hero was Horsham midwife Leigh Robins, who received multiple nominations.

The deadline for nominations is Monday, October 10 and the winners will be revealed on Monday, November 7 at the glitzy Community Awards ceremony at The Capitol theatre.
