This year ITV News Anglia is once again joining forces with the Daily Mirror to find the individual you think deserves to be crowned our Local Hero 2013.
We’re looking for people who go the extra mile to be a real force for good in their neighbourhood - they could be volunteers or professionals who go way above and beyond the call of duty.
Our Local winner could attend the star-studded Pride of Britain awards in London in October when the overall Local Hero winner for the UK will be unveiled.
