He has also been a member of Devon County Council for Ottery Rural from 1993 to 2013 and a member of East Devon District Council Ottery Town from 1995 to 2019.

Citizen and Business of the Year

The Annual Parish Meeting was held on 23rd April at the Institute where we were pleased to congratulate Peter Harris who was awarded Citizen of the Year, as voted for by the parishioners of Ottery St Mary for all his hard work around the town in maintaining the street furniture and bringing matters of importance to the attention of the Town Council. To quote from a nominee, “Peter is a well-known resident of Ottery St Mary. He has worked over the years keeping benches painted and is a mine of information about our town.” Cllr Paul Bartlett (the then Mayor) was delighted to present Peter with a glass trophy.

In addition, the new award, `the Business of the Year` was presented to `Tickety Boo` (due to the equality of votes for a number of the businesses in the town, the Rev Steve Weston had picked out `Tickety Boo` from the names contained in an envelope).

The Mayor thanked all the nominees and everyone involved in making the awards a success so congratulations to them all
