Congratulations to all our worthy award winners. What a night Two Paul Harris Fellowships, three community award winners, The Jim Boyd Trophy and The Ronald Ainsworth Trophy were all awarded in the one evening.  This reflected the enormous community activity taking part and largely unrecognised until now.
