Leicestershire County Council is calling for nominations to the scheme that recognises the impact individuals and places across the county have had on local communities.

The nomination window is now open and closes on March 30. The nominees will then be shortlisted to 12 by a panel of judges before a public vote to decide on the top six to receive a plaque.

Past winners of the accolade include the late Monty Python star Graham Chapman, with his plaque being erected at his former home on Burton Road, Melton, in December 2014. It was unveiled by his friend and co-star, actor Michael Palin.
