2018 Citizen’s Award:
This award was introduced by the Town Council in 2012 as a way of recognising and saying thank you to those people who have contributed to the community of Chudleigh. There were six nominations for the award:-
Malcolm Grose: Nominated for his work as an Ambulance Service first responder. Also his work as a lifeguard at the community pool.
Carol Ramsay: For her work as a volunteer and treasurer with Volunteering in Health
Wendy Bishop: For her work in organising events to raise money for charity.
Carl Gill: Nominated for his general good work within the community.
Alan Brunton: Nominated for his work over many years with the local History Group and leading a team of volunteers who clear overgrown vegetation in various parts of the town. Also for his work for the Royal British Legion in organising the annual Poppy Appeal.
Carole Smart: Nominated for her work in establishing Chudleigh Film Society. She has also been a key member of Chudfest and the Twinning Association. More recently she has established a very successful weekly luncheon club.
All of the nominations were of high merit and the adjudicating panel found it difficult to select an overall winner. However, they finally decided that the award should be presented Carole Smart. She will be presented with her award at the council meeting on 14 May.
