   Congratulations to George Devine BEM    10 October, 2020

Fen Ditton Parish Council is delighted that Councillor George Devine has been awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

The citation is 'For sevices to the community of Fen Ditton, Cambridgeshire during Covid-19'. This is particularly relevant as he is again organising a village response team as we seem to be gearing up for another outbreak.

Congratulations, George, and thanks for all the hard work over many years supporting the village and our volunteers.

George had the following comment: 'I have been awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queens Birthday Honours. The citation reads 'for work undertaken as volunteer lead in the village during the COVID19 crisis'. I was nominated by people in the village who have recognised my involvement. Obviously my success and this honours relied on an exceptional group of people who have worked with me and it is to them I owe a vote of thanks. I have accepted the honour in the spirit it has been presented. I feel elated and humble in equal measure. Such a surprise.'
