Pride of Bury Awards 2019!

Nominations have begun for The Pride of Bury Awards 2019.

Since starting in 2014, in memory of my Josh (AKA SuperJosh) local heroes of all ages are celebrated at these annual awards.

The awards are split into 14 categories and are the culmination of months of nominations and votes by local people.
