Vote for your Ottery ‘Citizen of the Year’
Its time to vote for who you think is Ottery’s ‘Citizen of the Year’ for 2012 as the council looks for nominations.
Ottery St Mary Council will make an award to the town’s ‘Citizen of the Year’ at the annual parish meeting in April.
It is looking for someone who had done a lot in the community, or worked to see through a particular project this past year.
In 2011 the award went to Ron Berry for his work at the Institute.
A statement from the council said: “Its really up to you the public to decide who you think merits this honour and why.”
The person with the most votes will pick up the award, and you don’t have to live in the parish to vote.
But the person being voted for does, and no council employee is eligible

The address is Ottery St Mary Town Council, Council Offices, 8 Broad Street, Ottery St Mary, Devon, EX11 1BZ, or it can be delivered in person, and the closing date is March 23.
