Peters' perfect as a neighbour.

Byline: By Wales on Sunday

Mick Peters has been crowned Wales' number one neighbour.

In a competition run by Kleeneze for Britain's Best Neighbour - backed by Wales on Sunday - he became regional Welsh winner for his big heart.

He was nominated by 59-year-old arthritis-sufferer Madeline Blackham, of Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd, who said: 'When I am at home by myself, Mick is that reassuring presence next door, ready to come and help if I need it. He is a neighbour in a million!'

Mick gets a cash prize of pounds 1,000, and Madeline will receive pounds 200 worth of Kleeneze vouchers.

Mick, 49, said: 'I was amazed when I heard that Madeline had nominated me, and I'm absolutely over the moon to have won! I am touched.'

Kim Rawson, deputy managing director of Kleeneze and chairman of the judging panel, said: 'The sheer number of entries shows that community spirit is very much alive in Wales.'
