THIS week, we are launching our search to find Basingstoke’s nicest person.

The town is filled with wonderful people who go above and beyond every day to make others happy and we want to celebrate the kindest among us.

If you know someone who goes out of their way to a difference or a kind character who can’t help but put others first, please get in touch by Friday, October 25.

We will select eight finalists who will receive a special prize while readers will get the chance to vote for the overall winner online. The nicest person in town will be announced on our website on Thursday, November 7.

To nominate, enter the form below or email with 250 words about the person you'd like to put forward. Good luck!
