Alan Sharp, Chairman of Woolavington Parish Council, presenting this year's Citizen of the Year Award to John Rowlands

The citation read out at the Village Show was as follows

"This year’s Citizen of the Year moved into the village about six years ago. He was a keen gardener and quickly applied to rent an allotment.

The following year he was elected onto the Allotments Committee almost straight away as Chairman.

He has led a team which has efficiently run the Sedgemoor Road allotments for the past five years.

Earlier this year he took the lead in establishing the new allotments site in the Newlands development which enabled the plots to be fully let during the current growing season.

The 2018 Citizen of the Year is JOHN ROWLANDS."
