Last week residents of Sutton came together to celebrate recognition for community champions and unsung heroes, who go above and beyond to make a real difference in their neighbourhoods. The Sutton’s Stars Awards, was the first of its kind held by Sutton Housing Partnership (SHP). Over the last few weeks SHP has been looking for local heroes, often working quietly and tirelessly for the good of the community and often without recognition. The event, held at the Salvation Army was also dedicated to celebrate SHP’s 10 year anniversary, with significance on improved housing services in the borough during this time. This has been evidently aided by residents’ commitments to improving their neighbourhoods through various groups and forums, community events and Residents’ Associations. SFTRA (Sutton Federation of Tenant and Resident Associations) and the SLA (Sutton Leaseholders Association) were also commended on their 20 years in service. SFTRA has supported tenants, leaseholders and residents associations through many different avenues, giving advice and support to existing Residents’ Associations and encouraging the establishment of new associations in the borough. As part of the evening, the winners of the Sutton’s Stars competition were announced. Over 50 nominations were submitted for the below categories: Community Champion – Someone who has shown themselves to be someone special, who works quietly and tirelessly for the good of the community. Good Neighbour – With no fuss...Read More
