Witham's community heroes were honoured at a special ceremony.

Twelve residents picked up Witham Chamber Safety and Community Awards on Monday from District Commander Craig Carrington.

Dedicated chefs, community litter pickers, charity champions, neighbourhood watch volunteers and landlords were recognised.

Tina Townsend said: “It went really well and we were really pleased with how many turned up.”

Nominations for 2018 open on March 1. Email events@withamchamber.co.uk.
