The Maher Ross Team were delighted to sponsor the Islands Local Heroes Awards "Best Neighbour of the Year" - organised by Isle of Wight Radio.
 
The glittering event was held at Cowes Yacht Haven on Thursday 27th June 2013 and celebrated the best of our Island's local heroes.  The winner, Eddie Groves of Wootton, was nominated by his neighbours, Reg, 87, and Kay, 90, who nominated him for this award saying that they have never met anyone quite like him. They say "he is so generous with his time for others in distress or difficulties. One example of this is that his next door neighbour has been in and out of hospital, sometimes for long periods. Eddie has cultivated his garden, tended his greenhouse and regularly visited him in hospital. He has also helped the lady in the bungalow on the other side of his house, and two families on the other side of the road. In fact, he has no less than 12 families that he 'keeps an eye on'. On many occasions he has helped us – giving us lifts and tending our garden and greenhouse when we are away. Eddie and his wife are a huge part of our community".
 
At the end of a delightful and at times, emotional evening, where hero's from around the Island were celebrated, Graham Jolliffe, a Director of Maher Ross was delighted to present Eddie with his award.  Graham congratulated Eddie on having been voted the best neighbour on the Isle of Wight - 2013.  Well done Eddie!
