Mike Herbert Award for Endevour 2021-22

For those of your who have visited our website previously you will have seen that The Rotary Club of Newark Castle were awarded the Mike Herbert Award for Endevour at the Changeover meeting held Friday 1st July 2022 which came somewhat as a surprise however a very welcome and pleasing one!

The Club was nominated by Stella Herbert - District Executive Officer (Head of Membership) for District 1220 - who wrote some very kind words about the Club:

"I’d like to nominate Newark Castle Rotary for this award. This time last year the club had suffered a massive loss of members for various reasons it would have been very easy to call it a day and close the club. BUT under the careful presidency of Geoff Nicholls and his team, they have dug in, built some new supporting foundations and managed to continue healthily with 2 new members . They have had closer working relationships with Newark Rotary and David Shannon the outgoing president of this club & with them they have laid feelers out for new Rotarians in new housing developments and started some joint projects. They have won a gold award for assisting in the Newark in Bloom competition which showcased their volunteering work, as well as planting 1000s of trees for the Queens Green Canopy Project as well as many more.

The club should be recognised for not letting the losses beat them, but by regrouping and laying new plans according to their current membership numbers, they will go on looking stronger each year."

A glowing endorsement indeed for Past President Geoff and all Club members.
