A CO-OPERATIVE Group committee chairman has been declared a hero of his home town by the local Mayor.

Edgar Evans, chair of the Group&#039s Bath and Wiltshire Area Committee was among 73 Bathonians, ranging from children to pensioners, who were named as unsung heroes at a ceremony in the Guildhall in Bath.

As well as his involvement with the Group, Edgar is also chairman of the South West Bath Credit Union and organises a social group for elderly people.

He said: "It is very good that voluntary work is being recognised in this way. I am delighted and thought it was lovely that the Mayor and leader of the council came along to the old people&#039s club I run."
