We’ve heard stories of bravery, determination, support and love – and we can’t wait to celebrate the Isle of Wight’s Local Hero’s.

The nominations have all been passed to our team of judges who now have the hard task of deciding who will be celebrated as an Isle of Wight Radio Local Hero for 2017.


The nominees range from people who have shown determination to a cause or been an inspirational leader, they might have even made a difference to your life.
