The winners of the coveted Pride in Dacorum community awards will be revealed at a gala bash tonight.

The awards are organised by the HeraldExpress and our sister paper the Gazette to salute unsung heroes across a range of categories.

Centre stage this evening at Shendish Manor in Apsley will be popular EastEnders actor Nitin Ganatra, who featured on the BBC’s family history show Who Do You Think You Are last week.

He will be handing out the awards and highly commended certificates with the help of sponsors who have backed the annual event.

Categories include Service With A Smile, Young Achiever, Friendly Neighbour and Fundraiser Of The Year.

Judges who had the tough job of deciding on the winners have said that it was an incredibly difficult task, but so heartening to read of the amazing achievements of all the nominees.

Details of the winners will be posted, along with video from the night, on this website after the event and there will also be a comprehensive souvenir report in next Wednesday’s Gazette.
