From the editor

All too often the word hero is mis-used, people are described as being a hero without really carrying out a remotely heroic act. So, each year when we launch the Wiltshire Life Awards, we look carefully at each category and how best to describe the different criteria. We use words such as remarkable, bravery, spirit, endeavour, entrepreneurship. Life of late, has been rather unsettling and testing but across this county there are people who have risen to the challenges and in many cases surprised themselves by what they have achieved. Head to the Wiltshire Life Awards website and find the right words to nominate someone who deserves to be recognised for their commitment and dedication.
