A long-standing member of North Somerset’s Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Network has been recognised for his years of volunteering.

Ron Green has been heavily involved with the group since its inception in 2006.

Weston mayor Jos Holder presented him with a certificate to recognise his service at the network’s office in Orchard Place, Weston-super-Mare, and the event coincided with his 85th birthday.

BME volunteer Lisa Kirkhope said: “It was great to be able to celebrate Ron’s special birthday with him.

“He is a great advocate of the BME Network and all it does for newcomers to our local community.”

Also present was mayoress Roz Willis, and current and former trustees and volunteers.
