Who is that in the bicycle helmet?
London isn’t really short of award ceremonies, but there’s another one on the horizon - The London Lifestyle Awards. Dubbed “A celebration of every aspect of London’s fantastic way of life”, once we get over the emphatic adjectives we quite like the idea of it.
The so-called LLA’s will “pay tribute to the outstanding contributions by businesses and individuals to one of the most cosmopolitan, entertaining and visited cities in the world” (that’s London, by the way). An awards committee has been created to draw up a shortlist for each of the 16 categories and once that’s done, we’ll all be able to vote for who we think deserves to win.
The committee comprises “12 of the most influential and celebrated people in London”. CBBC presenter Angellica Bell and GMTV presenter Michael Underwood (who incidentally are an item) are key members. Really? Anyway, looks like this motley crew might just need your help, so email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions for any of the awards categories to make sure your favourite gets a look in. The shortlist will be announced on 23rd August.
