For this month’s Community News article, I’d like to tell you a little about being invited to participate in Taunton’s Christmas 2018 light ‘switch on’ event. 

Prior to the event, the public has been suggesting nominations for their ‘Community Hero’ and there were some excellent nominees. However, the overwhelming winner in the eyes of the judges, was World War two veteran Mr Jim Booth (97), and it was my huge honour to be asked to introduce Jim to the large crowd.

The highlight for me was after the event, having time to chat to Jim over a hot chocolate. We discussed a wide range of subjects and the thing that struck me most was his humility.

Jim, not only are you a true hero, you’re a real gentleman too. I am honoured to have met your sir.

John Hunt
