Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
It's back for 2015, another celebration of Essex's heroes. Nominations are in and our judges now have the hard task of selecting out winners!
We've teamed up with London Southend Airport and Flybe to celebrate the local heroes who make Essex proud, from dedicated foster parents to those who raise thousands for charity or give loads of their time to their community.
And Essex, you've done us proud this year as we've had the highest number of nominations yet!
Nominations are now closed and our judges now have the really difficult job of deciding on the winner of each of our 10 categories ahead of our glittering award ceremony in July.
All our winners, along with five guests, will be invited to the exclusive ceremony hosted by Heart Breakfast's Martin and Su on Friday 10th July at Chelmsford City Racecourse.
Pack your suitcase as London Southend Airport has flights across the UK, Europe and beyond and with 8 trains direct from Central London to the airport, it's easier than ever to jump on a flight.
Need to stay over before you travel? The Holiday Inn is perfect for kick starting your holiday. Plus with all the great facilities including high street shops, bars and restaurants at the airport, your holiday can start as soon as you check in!
