THE Ilkley Gazette and Wharfedale Observer would like to celebrate the key workers in the district who are going above and beyond to support their community.

The pandemic and its knock-on effects have caused many people to do great things to help their community and improve people's lives.

We are paying homage to those who are going above and beyond to help locals.

They might work for the NHS, a supermarket, local authorities, public transport, the police, the fire service, the Royal Mail, or even in local independent shops.

People can celebrate the key workers and community heroes in their streets, towns and villages who are going the extra mile to look after their neighbours during the pandemic.

To have them feature, just send an email to with their name. If you can, please send us a photo of them too and some details about what they are doing.
