Robin Hood Award for litter-picking volunteer

Posted onPosted on 16th Sep

At the first meeting of Sherwood Forest Rotary Club since the pandemic started, Paul Prudence was presented with the club’s Robin Hood Award.

Paul has been a prominent member of the community throughout the pandemic and was nominated for his commitment to keeping many areas of the community litter free.

Paul and his wife, Michelle, were guests of the club at Ollerton House, where the award and a citation were presented to him in the presence of members of Sherwood Rotary and their guests.

In September the club began meeting together as a group once again. Its annual programme of events has changed somewhat, but it will continue to publish a regular report to keep everyone informed.


Some Rotarians were present at the opening of the Community Garden Project at St Paulinus Church, Ollerton.

The Rotary club has been delighted to be able to support the work of John Pearson and his team during this project and congratulated all those “involved with the work associated with this wonderful project.”


The club’s sponsored bike ride in aid of Prostate Cancer has now finished and the final total raised is in excess of £4,500.

A spokesman said: “Our thanks go to president Dave Dennis and Laura Dennis for organising this very successful event.

“We also extend our thanks to all those who took part or donated to this important charity.

“If you have a project which needs some support or if you wish to find out more about our Rotary Club please contact us at”
