Sedgefield’s new Citizen of the Year

Congratulations to Sheila McMillan, Sedgefield's Citizen of the Year for 2017. Sheila was presented with the award, along with a scroll and crystal decanter, during Sedgefield’s Annual Town Meeting in the Parish Hall. Organised through a partnership of Sedgefield Town Council, Sedgefield Rotary Club and Sedgefield Development Trust, residents were invited to nominate candidates and then a panel of judges (including the immediate previous holder of the award) selected the winner. The judges chose Sheila McMillan for the wide range of work that she does through her involvement in various community groups.
