More than 60 people attended the event earlier this month, and finalists were treated to a free meal for two and prosecco.

The finalists were all people who went above and beyond to help others during the pandemic, including teachers, caring neighbours, nurses and shopkeepers.

The event was run in conjunction with Abode Town & Country estate agents in Royston.

Landlord Ivan Titmuss said: “We are delighted to join forces with Abode Town & Country who we would also like to thank for generously sharing the cost of our Unsung Lockdown Heroes evening.

“It was the perfect opportunity for people to give something back to those who have helped make a difference in any way whilst our ‘normal’ way of life has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.”
