Orpington MP calls for constituents to nominate local heroes
Orpington's MP Gareth Bacon has called for constituents to nominate local heroes who have stepped up during the coronavirus crisis so their good work can be recognised and celebrated.
Orpington residents are invited to email their nominations or submit them online if they know a special someone in the constituency whose work helping others deserves commendation.
Nominations must include your name, address and contact details, the name of your nominee, their address, and contact details, and the reason why you are nominating that person, group, or business, and, if possible, it should include a photograph of your nominee. Nominations close on the 30th of June.
Gareth Bacon MP commented: "Since this crisis started, so many people across the Orpington constituency have stepped up to help others and it's never been more important for us to celebrate those special people in our community. That's why I am calling for constituents to get in touch and nominate a local hero.
"Constituents can nominate any individual, group, or business who has volunteered their time to help their local community during this anxious and difficult time.
"I hope this can be an opportunity for us all to pause and recognise the good work of Orpington's local heroes, without whom, this challenging time would have undoubtedly been harder for so many.
"If you know a special someone who deserves commendation for stepping up and helping others during this crisis, please get in touch and nominate them. I will make sure that Orpington's local heroes are celebrated.”
