WV11 wins a Pride of Wolverhampton award!

Here at we’ve had a pretty good weekend. Around 10 days ago we received a call from 107.7 The Wolf telling us that we had won a Pride of Wolverhampton award!

According to The Wolf’s website, the awards are “a chance to showcase all that is good about the people of Wolverhampton” and we were thrilled to not only have been nominated by members of the community, but to have won an award.

Awards Ceremony

On Saturday night we attended the awards ceremony sponsored by 107.7 The Wolf and the Mander Centre where we were given the ‘entrepreneur of the year’ award (sponsored by Acorn to Oak financial services) for our ‘business minded, good idea that’s raised funds’. Whilst we pointed out that this website is non-profit and run on a voluntary basis, The Wolf wanted the help we’d given to local residents and businesses alike to be recognised and decided to give us this award, something we’re over the moon about!

The black tie awards ceremony at the Molinuex made for a great evening and featured a live performance by X-Factor winner Matt Cardle who performed 3 songs before signing autographs and posing for photos.

Amongst the 15 awards given out another two went to Wednesfield residents;  Vicky Ball from Wednesfield High won ‘teacher of the year’ and 9 year-old Oak Meadow student Tia Small won ‘child of courage’.

We’d like to say a massive thanks to everyone who nominated us,  to The Wolf and the Mander Centre for putting on such a great event and to all the WV11 readers who visit the website and our Facebook/Twitter pages.

And finally, we’d like to say congratulations to all of the winners – there were some really inspirational people at the event and we were honoured to be among them!

Hopefully goes some way to fixing this!
