Peter has just reached 65 years old. He does so much for our local community in Crediton Devon, I don't know where he gets all his energy. He is a great international ambassador; he started and has chaired the local Twinning Association with Avranches in France. Peter runs the boule competitions, Bar-b-ques and curry nights at his own house to raise money for the Association. He started the local swimming club and has been a coach there ever since the pool opened about 15 years ago. He runs swimming competitions for Cub-Scouts in Exeter and also runs a synchronised swimming club. He has been Group Scout Leader in Crediton for more years than I can remember. Since he retired from being a Police sergeant he has been a house parent at the local school boarding house, where the pupils in his care respect and confide in him probably more than their own parents. He is a very quiet, kind and caring individual. These are just a few of the things Peter does, he is truly an unsung local hero who does his best for our community, and I think very deserving for the honour of carrying the Olympic torch.
