The Peterborough Civic Awards night saw residents from all corners of the city come together to celebrate the hard work of volunteers, organisations and businesses.

The winners had been announced in January this year - but the ceremony was only able to be held this week because of the COVID pandemic.

The awards were presented by Mayor of Peterborough cllr Stephen Lane.

Along with the awards themselves, there was a performance from The Kindred Youth Theatre Company

Councillor Peter Hiller, chairman of the council’s Honours Panel, said: “We are living through very challenging times and it is extremely heart-warming to see how people in our communities have responded to help those in need.

“The honours panel were very encouraged to see that the popularity of the awards has increased tremendously, with many more nominations being submitted.”
