The inaugural Mid Sussex Applauds Awards took place on October 13 at Meridian Hall, East Grinstead, in celebration of the people and organisations who make the district a wonderful place to live.

The categories were Stronger Together, Take Pride in Mid Sussex, Young Achiever, Stronger Communities, Business in the Community, Young Volunteer of the Year, Good Sport, Lifetime Achievement, and Peer Nominated.

Community Wood Recycling enterprise Mid Sussex Wood Recycling won 3rd place in the Business in the Community category.

Third place went to Mid Sussex Wood Recycling Project for its work with Pericles charity to provide meaningful work activities for 12 adults with learning difficulties, and The Mug Tree Tea Room which councillor Colin Trumble said he thought had the most nominations for its welcoming atmosphere, local charity work, and for being a hub of recycling and sustainability.
