Sedgefield Citizen of the Year 2019/2020
This year’s Citizen of the Year Award had to be managed in a different way. Presented jointly by Sedgefield Town Council, Sedgefield Development Trust and the Rotary Club of Sedgefield, it is traditionally announced during the Annual Town Meeting in May. In the unusual context of 2020, rather than reveal the 2019 Citizen of the Year then, the decision was made to instead announce a 2019/2020 Citizen of the Year in December. Nominations were re-opened and a panel of judges held an online meeting to assess the candidates, including those who had already been suggested earlier in the year.

In common with all community groups, youth organisations have been badly hit by the pandemic. The Young Citizen of the Year Award, only established last year, relied on input from those groups, so sadly, no nominations were received this year for young people who qualify for the award. It will return refreshed in 2021!

However, there was a very strong line up of candidates for Citizen of the Year. We are very fortunate in Sedgefield to have so many people who contribute an awful lot to community life and choosing a winner in any given year is always extremely tough. The judges agree a set of criteria and then assess the nominees in detail. As ever, there were some very deserving individuals and the final result was very close, but there can only be one winner, and we are pleased to announce that the Sedgefield Citizen of the Year 2019/2020 is Howard Smith.

Registering for the energy switch commits you to absolutely nothing. Once registration closes, there is a tendering process after which you will receive a personal offer. You then simply choose to accept or not, if you think it is worth it.
