A COMPETITION to find Fareham’s community hero draws to a close this weekend.

Locks Heath Shopping Village is trying to find an exceptional person. They could be somebody who cares for others in the community, someone who has shown bravery or somebody who has devoted their life to helping others.

Ian Goodridge, centre manager said: ‘We are searching for those who deserve the highest praise, yet usually receive the least credit. I’m very much looking forward to hearing about all the wonderful things that people have done for their local community.’

To make a nomination send an email to by Sunday, May 19, including your contact details as well as your nominee’s and explaining why the nominee deserves to be crowned ‘Community Hero 2013’.
