The Radio Ceredigion Local Hero Awards are back for 2017, working to recognise and reward the unsung heroes and people who make a real difference to life in our county.
We all know someone who has done something special that deserves recognition. The Radio Ceredigion Local Hero Awards allows us to shine a light on unsung heroes in a range of categories.
This year, we held our glitzy award ceremony at the Cliff Hotel & Spa on Friday 15th September.
We would like to thank and congratulate all of our winners from the evening, you are our Local Heroes!
