A VOLUNTEER from Kingsteignton Girl Guides is the recipient of the town’s first Community Citizenship Award.

Jeanne Langridge, a stalwart volunteer of over 37 years with Kingsteignton Girl Guiding, was presented  with the award by the mayor Cllr Ron Peart at the annual town meeting held at the community Hall last Friday (May 17). 

Jeanne had been nominated by a former Girl Guide whose daughter is now a Girl Guide under Jeanne’s watchful eye. 

The annual town meeting was a chance for residents of the town to catch up on the achievements and work that the full town council and its committees have carried out during the last 12 months. 

Presentations to the public explaining what has happened over the past year were made Mayor Cllr Ron Peart (also Chair of the Works, Services and Planning Committee), Deputy Mayor Cllr Julie Scagell (Chair of the Community Hall and Recreation Committee) and Cllr Martin Field (Vice Chair of the Finance Committee).
