Local workers can feel at ease after the union for retail, fast-food and warehousing launched a major national campaign to help reduce customer abuse over Christmas.

The SDA has unveiled a campaign titled 'No One Deserves a Serve', which features television, radio, digital and outdoor advertising.

It responds to SDA research involving 6,000 retail and fast-food workers, which has found more than 85 per cent have experienced abuse from customers at work.

SDA NSW Secretary Bernie Smith says when the shops are extremely busy, as they are during the festive season, there is no excuse for physical or verbal mistreatment.

The Regional Wellbeing Survey allows residents to have their say on issues ranging from how the community is changing, to the health and wellbeing of locals.

All survey participants aged 18 or over can enter a draw to win one of 16 prizes worth a total of $7,000.

The survey is voluntary, confidential and anonymous, and will close at midnight on December 21st.

Member for Monaro John Barilaro has continued to applaud the efforts of locals recognised at the recent Monaro Service Awards.

Cooma local Narelle Holcomb took part in the Lions Club's Save Sight Challenge, which saw her publish a cook book, organise a trivia night and run a cake stall.

She had also raised more than $4,500 by the end of the challenge.

Mr Barilaro says Narelle is one of Cooma's most dedicated residents, and when she is given a challenge she gets to work and succeeds.

He says she is a passionate and caring member of the community, and is truly deserving of a Monaro Service Award.

Ceremonies were held recently in Cooma and Queanbeyan.
