With a series of events, Joy has raised around £5,000 for this worthy cause.

Max was nominated for the help he regularly offers to youngsters learning to swim at the Misterton Minnows Swimming Club, his help at Sure Start events at the Fire Station, and other fund-raising activities.

He was described as a fantastic role model to young people in the village.

They were presented with certificates and a cash prize by council chairman Barry Cooper.

At the meeting, Barry Cooper was re-elected chairman, and Peter Marsden as vice-chairman, for the year 2016-17.
