Launceston Rotary Citizen of the Year
A well-known local figure was presented with the annual Citizen of the Year Award in the Rotary Shop by Rotarian Neville Helme.
Raymond Phillips, the town road sweeper, was nominated by Rotarian Barrie Boundy for his excellent attitude and the devotion he shows to his job. The Rotary Club have been trying to present the award to him for several weeks, but he moves so fast that it has been difficult to pin him down!
Picture shows Neville presenting the inscribed salver to Raymond and we would all like to thank him for keeping the town clean and tidy. If you see him tell him, “Well done.”
