“The acts of kindness, community and generosity have been immense and still continue today.”

People can nominate any Haywards Heath based organisations, businesses or individuals that they feel have done an outstanding job in supporting people in the community.

“Haywards Heath has always had a tremendous community spirit but we have been simply astounded by the way our whole community pulled together to ensure we took care of each other,” said councillor Matt Jeffers, chairman of the Environment and General Purposes Committee.
