WITH Christmas just around the corner, it's time to show your appreciation to someone who has made a difference to the town.

There's no better way to say thank you than by making a nomination for the Sidmouth Citizen of the Year award.

Run jointly by Sidmouth Rotary Club and the Herald, the competition aims to find someone who has made a significant contribution to life in or around the town.

Nominees can include charity workers or people who act on their own initiative to benefit the community.

The Rotary Club of Sidmouth made their first Citizen of the Year award in 1985 and there is a full Roll of Honour Board displayed at the offices of Sidmouth Town Council.

Over the past ten years awards have been made to the following various charity workers and helpers: Mrs J Shaw in 1998, Mr F Wedderburn in 1999, Mrs M Brown in 2000, Mrs M Clarke in 2001, Mrs B Easey in 2002, Miss M Macadam in 2003, Bill Lankester MBE in 2006 and last year David Baldock was awarded the title.

The 2004 and 2005 accolades were given to Mary King for her services to British Eventing and Chris Dunford for his overall enthusiasm with Sidmouth Rugby Club juniors.

Readers have until Wednesday, February 4, 2009, to get their nominations in.

Nominations can be made using the form, which will be printed in the Herald every week until Friday, January 30, 2009.

Photocopies will not be accepted.

Completed forms should be sent in envelopes marked 'Citizen of the Year' to the Herald, 106 High Street, Sidmouth, Devon, EX10 8EF.
