The fifth Belgravia Awards, evening takes place in January 2018 – and if you’d like to nominate a member of our community who deserves recognition, we would be delighted to hear about them.
The event, is organised by Belgravia magazine with the support of Grosvenor and The Jumeirah Carlton Tower.
This year’s ceremony saw more than 350 guests gather at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower for a champagne and canapé reception.
During the evening Jo Malone of Jo Loves presented awards to inspiring members of the community, who were chosen by a panel of judges from the nominations of Belgravia magazine readers.
What Julian Fellowes said after the 2015 event still holds true: that there is “a lovely sense of neighbourly goodwill” in the room.
In an enhancement to the awards, this year we will present six awards to businesses or admirable people who live or work in Belgravia.
The categories are:
Recognises a person who goes the extra mile to help others and creates a stronger community.
At Your Service
Recognises a person or business that puts service at the forefront of its dealings with the community.
Recognises a person or business who has done outstanding work for a good cause or charity.
A business that has relatively recently joined the Belgravia community and has impressed by immersing itself in the community.
A business that has been a part of the local scene for years and is well appreciated by the local community.
Recognises a person that has garnered great respect for their achievements in their chosen field.
Adrian Day, publisher of Belgravia magazine said: “It’s wonderful to be organising our fifth awards – but the winners aren’t just those who pick up the award on the night. The nominations process also gives us all a chance to show those people and businesses that we appreciate the contribution they make to our community.
“That is why we have introduced some new categories this year, as a way of embracing new friends and recognising those that have served us so well in the past.”
Local legend, Sue Liberman scooped the Local Hero award in January this year and Carl Muller was recognised for creating and caring for the Eaton Square concerts. Shane Ryan was also recognised for the work he has put in at the charity Working with men, supporting boys and young men who are marginalised by society.
If you would like to nominate someone who you believe deserves recognition for their contribution to the community, please get in touch. The only requirement is that they live, work or go to school in Belgravia (in the case of individuals) or be located in our area in the case of businesses.
Simply email your suggestion to Cally Squires (editor of Belgravia magazine) at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call her on 020 7259 1058. A panel of judges will decide who they believe should receive an award.
We look forward to sharing stories of deserving nominees with our readers over the coming months.
