In recognition of the many achievements the society has secured in the last few years we have recently been presented with Wirral Borough Council’s Civic Award.
The ceremony took place on 5th March in the splendid surroundings of the Round Room at Wallasey Town Hall and to mark their special contribution to the society’s work Brian Sinton and Rob Dolphin dined with the Mayor of Wirral before being presented with the award. Also, their names will now be recorded on the rollcall of previous winners which includes Olympic champion Chris Boardman, former Tranmere Rovers player and manager John Aldridge and country music legend Charlie Landsborough.
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 since 2016 and in that 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 has been an active member of several small project groups formed to create this website, produce the group’s new publicity brochure and organise and deliver in November 2018 the first remembrance service held at Flaybrick in over forty years.
