Ellesmere Town Council is looking for an unsung hero from the town as part of a new event.

The town's mayor, Councillor Paul Goulbourne, on behalf of Ellesmere Town Council, has launched a search for the ‘Unsung Heroes’.

Cllr Goulbourne said: "If you know an ‘Unsung Hero’ in your area who has gone the extra mile during the coronavirus outbreak, please contact us with your nomination.

"There are so many anonymous individuals, groups and organisations who have been doing what they can to help residents in and around Ellesmere.

"From shopping for an elderly neighbour to collecting and delivering prescriptions for the residents of an entire village, there are so many people who deserve recognition."

Please email your nominations to assistant.clerk@ellesmere-tc.gov.uk or by post to Unsung Hero Search, Ellesmere Town Council, 1-3 Willow Street, Ellesmere, Shropshire, SY12 0AL.
