The inaugural Harold Lock Memorial Awards look place recently, recognising some of Sudbury’s many unsung heroes.
Harold was a well known local figure - a war hero who spent four years in a notorious Japanese ‘death camp’ during the Second World War. He died last year aged 93, and fellow Sudburian Bob Darvell devised the awards as a way of paying tribute to Harold.
The first awards night was held on Saturday, July 21, at Northcroft Social Club and was attended by humanitarian Terry Waite.
Mr Lock’s book, The Forgotten Men, which details his wartime experiences and has been republished, was also sold on the night.
The award winners were Phil Roper (Indigoross), Teresa Bishop, (Christopher Centre), Steve Bulmer (fire service), Dr Jetha and Zoey Nunn (NHS), and Gregory Bishop – joint award winner with his wife Teresa – for litter picking and general work within the community.
