AXMINSTER resident Bryan Ball is the latest recipient of the Robin Cross Citizen of the Year Award.

The award was established in 2018 in memory of Robin Cross, who went above and beyond for the community of Axminster.

Nominees are chosen by residents and it is awarded to those who are thought of as a stalwart in the town.

Mr Ball was nominated for all his time he gives to planting, watering and caring for the floral displays in the town centre, enhancing it for everyone who visits Axminster.

Mr Ball was presented with the Robin Cross Citizen of the Year Award earlier this month by Geoff Enticott, who was awarded the title last year.

He also received a cheque for £100 for his chosen charity ARC, which provides local counselling and psychotherapy in Axminster.
