The council tweeted about this year's awards and said local heroes that volunteer in the community or help their neighbours can be nominated for the honour.

Reading Chronicle:

The citizen's award is intended to be given to people who "go above and beyond in the community", supporting people such as vulnerable children, the elderly, the disabled, or even simply because they are good neighbours.

The council tweeted: "Do you know of a #local #hero who helps people in a #voluntary capacity in the #Woodley area?
