I WOULD like to nominate Steven de Roer, a resident of Cheshire Homes in Summerstrand, as the Hero of the Day for his untiring service to the community. Steven was seriously injured while in the military and is confined to a wheelchair.

His speech is also compromised, but all this does not stop him from rising above his circumstances and providing a valuable service to others by diligently and regularly weeding the edges of the cycle path in Admiralty Way. This has stopped the aggressive grass invasion of the cycle path which had started to destroy the tarred surface.

Out in the hot sun, he is friendly and cheerful, a wondrous example to us all.
