Here are the shortlists for the seven categories in Bridlington’s second Extraordinary People Awards.

The cream of the community will be recognised at a ceremony at Bridlington Spa on Friday, November 17.

It is organised by the Promenades Shopping Centre, which has had the tricky job of getting the shortlists down to three.
