EACH year the Love Barrow awards celebrate the best of the borough and this year is no exception.
As the unsung heroes of the Barrow community gathered for a glamorous ceremony at The Forum on Friday night, a sense of pride in the area shone through for all to see.
From those who received a trophy, to the runners-up, it is the efforts of these special people which were in the spotlight.
They make a difference to the lives of others and make our community a better place to live.
Be it Citizen of the Year, or Carer of the Year, Community Group of the Year or the Courage Award, all of the accolades recognise impressive achievements.
In reality, all of the finalists are winners. Their inspirational work, acts of generosity, enthusiasm and dedication deserve to be recognised.
However, the ceremony not only acts as an uplifting occasion for those involved, but serves as a reminder to us all of the community spirit we are lucky to have.
One which is not only restricted to Barrow, but stretches across Furness, the South Lakes and South Copeland.
Our congratulations to all the winners and finalists – you deserve it.
