At the Annual Parish Meeting held on Monday 27th April, the Chairman made awards to all the local business in Ditton that had taken part in the Voluntary Litter Code. Also Awards for Outstanding Contributions to the Community were made to Sheila Farmer and Gary and Coral Smith for their contribution to the Annual Village Show, to John Sellick for his long service as a Governor to Ditton Infant School and to Laurence Snook for his work with Comunigrow.
