What are we about and what do we hope to achieve?

The Sustainable Sidmouth Champions Awards was first considered in late 2020 – in the middle of the pandemic:

How did this all begin? – Sustainable Sidmouth Champion Awards

The Awards were launched in spring 2021 – with the following objectives at their heart:

  • The Awards will celebrate the role local people have played in our community by going out of their way to offer help or support.
  • This past year has obviously been very tough for all and we feel that it’s important to recognise these contributions .
  • We want to engage as many residents as possible in these awards and make it a really important, inclusive local event.

The organisers of the Awards then asked the wider Sidmouth community:

  • to nominate an individual, a business or a group who you feel deserves recognition,
  • to share this information as widely as possible,
  • and to join us in congratulating all those who get nominated.

What are the three award categories?

a focus on green issues

a focus on business adaptability

a focus on community efforts

With the How to Nominate page giving further details – closed for nominations as of 30 September 2021.
