0 Westbury football stalwart honoured by PM

PeteSmartA volunteer groundsman who has prepped Westbury's football pitches for 50 years is the latest winner of a new Point of Light award, Prime Minister David Cameron has announced.

Pete Smart has painted more than 5,000 miles of lines on Westbury Youth Football Club's Redland Lane grounds - enough to stretch from Wiltshire to Brazil.

Mr Smart is the latest recipient of a Point of Light award, which recognises outstanding individual volunteers, people who are making a change in their community and inspiring others. Each day, someone, somewhere in the country is selected to receive the award to celebrate their remarkable achievements.

Mr Smart has been groundsman at Redland Lane for the past 20 years and is now Honorary Life President of the Westbury Youth Football Club, providing Westbury's young sportspeople with one of the best playing surfaces for grassroots football in Wiltshire.
