Although tonight is late night shopping, which I will enjoy as much as the next person, I’m a bit sick of hearing about Black Friday, Cyber Monday and consumer spend, spend, spend this Christmas. What about those who do, do, do for the community?
So, I am interested to hear some pre-Christmas views from people who are active all year round in our amazing community. I’ve sent out the following 10 questions to some great people for whom I have contact details.
If you want to suggest anyone else, please ask them to email their responses and a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org pronto.
I realise it is a really busy time, and I haven’t contacted people who I know are really snowed under or can’t access the internet, but that’s not to stop them, and we’d all love to hear from them.
Anyway, first up is Pritch, surf aficionado, and volunteer for anything to do with a surfboard, for whom deep respect, and many thanks, Good Sir…what an impact you’ve made on Bude during 2014.

Having people living here who genuinely care about other people. People who will go the extra mile to check you are ok, do something for other people and simply do something
for the benefit of others in the community whilst expecting nothing back for themselves!
