A Hatfield man has been named a Howard Centre Community Hero for his selfless actions.

Stephen Murray, 59, won the award for May for his work as a support worker at the Digswell Community Garden Project.

Stephen has been involved in the project since 2001.

He, along with a team of volunteers, provide day care support to vulnerable adults with learning difficulties through horticultural activities.

Stephen said the most rewarding part about his work is seeing the students gain confidence and have fun.

He added: “I am so proud of them as they come so far and to our amazing volunteers who give up their time.”

Volunteers nominated Stephen for “selflessly” making sure that students come first and for his “kind and caring” manner.

Anyone can go along and buy some plants from Digswell Nurseries, in Great North Road, enjoy the coffee shop and the children’s playground.
