The More Radio Awards Mid Sussex are back for 2018

On Friday 14th September 2018 we were at the South of England Showground in Ardingly celebrating all that’s great about Mid Sussex and the surrounding area, recognising everything from flourishing businesses, true community spirit, sporting brilliance and individuals with a heart of gold.

This year’s Awards were brought to you with EuroSkoda, Crawley, and Roadrunners – for taxis that don’t cost the earth!


Here are our amazing winners videos in the following categories.


Community Achievement Award – with Mid Sussex District Council

We we’re looking for a group or individual who’s made a significant contribution to the community. Maybe they’ve campaigned for something we can all benefit from, improved the local area or made our community a safer place.

The Winner was Carol Langridge


Courage Award – with Accountancy & Business Matters

The Courage Award looks to celebrate someone whose bravery has been tested, but who has remained resolute, even in the face of the most frightening or desperate circumstances.

The winner was: Jane Turner


Inspiration Award – with The Ravenswood

We wanted to give this award to a group or individual who truly define the word inspiration.  Whether it be through one act of bravery of selflessness or years of determination and hard work. If you know someone inspiring in your life, please get nominating.

The winner was: Colin Buxton


Charity of the Year – with Sarah Lacey Dry Cleaning

This award recognises a charity or fundraising group who have worked tirelessly to improve the day to day lives of those less fortunate. It could be a big charity or a small one –  how much they’ve raised and how many employees or volunteers they have is not important – it’s all about the impact they have on the lives of those they are looking to help.

The Winner was: Dame Vera Lynn Charity


Chris Copsey Gold Award – with Kangaroos

This is a very special award to celebrate a special individual, group or charity that have a real success story to tell and have really made a difference.

The winner was: Kara and David Carling


Sporting Excellence – Southdown Body Shop 

We wanted to recognise a local individual or team who’ve excelled in their chosen sport over the last twelve months. It’s not necessarily about how many trophies are in the cabinet; skill, determination and teamwork are just as important.

The winner was: Lewes FC Women 


Young Person of the Year – with Sahara Tanning Salon, Burgess Hill & Haywards Heath

We we’re looking for a young person, under 18, who deserves special recognition. Whether they’ve had to overcome illness, disability or tough personal circumstances, or someone who has achieved something significant academically or through a talent.

The winner was: Christopher Keeble


Top Teacher – with Happy Feet Boutique

We we’re looking for a head teacher, teacher or teaching assistant who you think deserved ‘gold star’ recognition. Someone whose true talent and passion lies in teaching and inspiring young people.

The winner was: Mark Kearley


Best Business or Organisation – with Ryan Andrews of Action Coach


This award is for a local business that’s  flourishing. We we’re looking for a local success story; a company that’s made gains in turnover, demonstrated great service and done an exceptional job of standing out from the crowd.

The winner was: The Ravenswood Hotel


Best Eatery – with Not Your Average I/Do

Whether it’s a delicious bar snack at your local, or the most lavish fine dining experience, or something in between, we wanted to hear about the place that keeps you coming back for more.

The winner was: The Wheatsheaf, Henfield
