VIDEO: Community Stars shine at annual awards ceremony

Waiting for Video...

MORE than 200 people packed into the Dome Cinema on Sunday for the Herald & Gazette Community Stars awards ceremony.

The fifth annual event was a celebration of amazing individuals and organisations going the extra mile on a daily basis to make West Sussex a better place.

Meridian’s Fred Dinenage returned as the compere and talked the audience through a bevy of touching and inspiring stories before presentations were made by the sponsors of each award.

Every single person nominated in the 14 categories came as a result of somebody noticing the good work that they do, and taking the time to put pen to paper and post nominations in.

The winners were:

Super Senior, Ron Battell

Sporting Achievement, The Wondergirls and Boys
