Slideshow: Mansfield’s Pride Awards

Mansfield and Ashfield came together last week to celebrate the work of unsung heroes across the district during the annual Chad Pride Awards.

The event, which took place at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex, saw awards dished out in 12 categories ranging from sporting achievement and fundraising to courageous children and adults to inspiring members of the emergency services, teachers and carers or careworkers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

Chad editor Phil Bramley said: “There are many reasons to be proud of our area, but the main one is the incredible people who live and work here to make it such a fantastic community.

“These awards are perhaps the most important that the Chad presents each year.

“They honour the brave and the determined, the ordinary people who do the special things that prove to be such an inspiration to us all.”
