THE first ever People of Exmouth Awards are being held at the Royal Beacon Hotel next month and will celebrate our community and those who help to create it.

In association with Exmouth Town Council and The Exmouth Journal, Christian Aid will present the awards on Friday May 20 at 7.30pm to recognise the unsung heroes who are the backbone of every community – Ordinary people Being Extraordinary (OBE!)

Laura McAdam of Christian Aid said: “This is not a competition, but a recognition of those who make outstanding contributions to our community; those who go the extra mile without seeking reward; those who do not get into the papers for what they do; the courageous, caring, dedicated, unselfish unearthed treasures of Exmouth.”

The kind of people, she said, that could be honoured are an excellent teacher, a kind neighbour, an exemplary foster parent, a great carer, a helpful postie, a generous friend, a loyal colleague, a dedicated student, a humble public servant, a reliable behind-the-scenes volunteer.

Exmouth Mayor, Darryl Nicholas said, “We all know someone who makes our lives and our community better - someone who deserves recognition for all they do. Well, now we can nominate them for an award. It’s marvellous!

“The awards ceremony will raise awareness of those who make our town amazing, whilst raising funds for those in the poorest communities around the world who also work tirelessly to improve the quality life.”
