And Russell and Anna Walker from The Willows received their honour for their “help with Usk in Bloom and continued support around the town”.

Cllr Roderick received many nominations for grants from local children and youth groups who have suffered during the pandemic.

And he said: “It’s a pleasure to support these groups that applied for funding and it has been a great evening recognising the good work that goes on in Usk.”

He thanked all the helpers at the groups the fund supported, including Usk RFC Juniors, Usk Brass Band, Usk Junior Cricket, Encore Drama Group, St Mary’s Church, Usk Scouts, Usk Guides, Usk School PTFA and Usk Junior Tennis.
