The Love Where You Live Awards are a community-wide celebration of people who make this a district to be proud of and they become more successful every year. A great deal of hard work has been going on across the district to make our communities better places to live and local people are at the heart of this.

Wakefield and District Housing

I’m very proud to say that our Facebook group, Ossett Through Ages (OTTA) has won the first prize in the ‘Digital in the Community’ category after the public voted in their thousands.

I want to be sure that all our members know how grateful I am for their support and contributions over the last seven years.

OTTA started in 2015 as a place to share old photos and memories. Whilst this is still an integral part of our group, we have evolved into so much more. Facebook has given us a digital platform that enables us to come together, from all corners of the globe, as a community. And what a community we are!

I’m told that mine was the reaction of the night. That’s because we were up against some tough competition and I was expecting to have my dinner and go home! I’m humbled that the public chose OTTA. Thank you to everyone who voted.

This award means the world to me as I truly do Love Where I Live.
