In recognition of the many achievements the society has secured in the last few years we are to be presented with Wirral Borough Councils Civic Award.
The awards ceremony will take place in the splendid surroundings of the Round Room at Wallasey Town Hall. To mark their special contribution to the society’s work Brian Sinton and Rob Dolphin will dine with the Mayor of Wirral before being presented with the award. Also, their names will be recorded on the rollcall of previous winners which include Chris Boardman and Charlie Lansbough.
Brian has been a loyal member of the society for 10 years and apart from leading the onsite volunteers he has been instrumental in bringing corporate volunteers into Flaybrick. In addition, he has obtained tools and the smart fleeces and polo shirts that have given the society a real identity with the public.
Rob has been a member for only two and a half years and yet in that short time he has become a trustee, a very effective walks leader, re-drafted our constitution, obtained our brown tourism signs, organised our blue plaque event and worked tirelessly on other projects.
I am sure you will join me in wishing them well for their special day out on the 5th March.
