TOWN Hall bosses are looking for unsung heroes who help cut crime and make a stand against yobs on the streets of London’s East End.

They want anyone who has stood up to anti-social behaviour or a community organisation volunteer who has worked with victims or even perpetrators of crime and is trying to improve things.

Their name can go on a shortlist for Tower Hamlets Council’s first Community Safety awards aimed at giving commendation to those who help make the community safer.

The council has started the awards “to recognise the contribution these people make to other people’s lives in helping reduce crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour.”

This can include helping at a youth club which keeps youngsters off the streets and occupied, to supporting people to get off drugs.

“We want to hear about those who go the extra mile,” the Town Hall said in a statement. “Let us know if you think they have made a difference.

“This is a chance to recognise the work that goes on in the community that helps to make us all feel safer.”

The awards are open to anyone living or working in the London Borough Tower Hamlets, including those under 16. Nominations open today (September 15) and close November 30 for the awards taking place in the New Year.
