Mr Cottam was chosen ahead of other nominees, Tricia Day and Andrew Appleby, both of Moulton Seas End, for his work with Moulton Chapel Youth Club.

He and his wife Jean also led a successful campaign for a footpath to be created from Roman Road to Moulton Chapel Primary School.

Mr Cottam said: “I was very surprised and really overwhelmed with the award.

“What keeps me going is getting up in the morning, gardening and helping Moulton Chapel in any way that I can.”

It was a hard decision for the council to select a winner and both Victor and Lily received a small shield to keep, along with a framed certificate

“It was a really nice touch and Lily was really happy and proud to have won.”
