WDH Chief Executive Kevin Dodd said: “A great deal of hard work has been going on across the district to make our communities better places to live, and local people are at the heart of this.
“The Love Where You Live Awards become more successful every year, and we are hoping for even greater things in 2015."
The awards were sponsored by Wolseley Integrated Sevices, and a charity raffle raised £300 which will be shared between the Prince of Wales Hospice and Wakefield Hospice.
