Chance to make a mark

NOMINATIONS are being sought for a person or group to appear on the cover of next year’s Hobart phone book (the combined White Pages and Yellow Pages). The theme will be “A Helping Hand, the Aussie Way”. Sensis (the phone book company) is looking for individuals who have gone above and beyond to lend a hand in the community when times get tough. They might have led recovery efforts after natural disasters, supported the vulnerable, or they might be long time volunteers who don’t hesitate in helping others.

The nominee must have contributed to the community in one or more of the following ways:

  • Performed an action/s that has resulted in a positive impact on the local community
  • Undertaken projects/activities to help others in the community
  • Initiated projects/activities to help the community overcome ongoing struggles/difficulties
  • Assisted those new to the region in forming community relationships
  • Displayed strong leadership to protect, reunite or rebuild their community
  • Volunteered their time to help protect, re-establish or rebuild the community
  • Actively volunteered their time, over an extended period of time, to help create a better community
  • Inspired others to undertake actions/projects to help better the community

Nominations close on November 28. For more information or to make a nomination, visit

Derwent Valley themes have featured on the front of the phone book on several occasions in the past. The most recent example was in 2009 when Bothwell’s Bignell family was featured. In 1998 the Belmont hop kiln at Rosegarland was chosen for the front page (pictured above). The building was destroyed by fire in May 2009.
