Nominations wanted for community award

Posted onPosted on 10th Mar

Nominations are wanted for a popular annual award that celebrates the work of volunteers in our communities.

The Sherwood Forest Rotary Robin Hood Award for 2020-2021 is given out each year by the Rotary club with the winner getting to keep the bespoke wooden carving of Robin Hood for a year.

A spokesman for the club said: “Over this last year community volunteers are playing a massive part in our neighbourhoods, assisting people in need.

“The Sherwood Forest Rotary Robin Hood Award is given to someone from Ollerton, Edwinstowe, Boughton or the surrounding villages who has served their community tirelessly, often in a volunteer capacity.

“Previous recipients have come from all walks of life, for instance a Guide leader, someone helping older people or people with learning difficulties to live a fulfilling life, a community music stalwart, youth leaders and the like.

“This year we will also consider a community group or local charity that has gone ‘over and above’ for their local residents.”

Sherwood Forest Rotary would like nominations for anyone you know who you think would deserve to receive the award for 2020-2021, someone who has excelled in assisting our community in the last year.

Nominations can be emailed to or sent by post to the Secretary, Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest, c/o 4 Brook Lane, Collingham, Notts NG23 7QY. Nominations should be received by 30th April 2021

The nomination should include a brief resume of why the person is being nominated.
