The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge recognises that there are people who go well beyond the call of duty in the things they do for the community and that their work often goes unacknowledged.  We are therefore extremely pleased to present awards in acknowledgement of what we feel are outstanding contributions to the local community.

 

Peter Marsland (2022)

Peter Marsland
Many people will remember Peter, who sadly passed away in 2021, from his days of operating and serving the community through his chemist’s shop in Mytholmroyd. He was also a member of Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge for over 50 years, throughout that time he always championed charities and good causes for the young people of the Calder Valley. He was also a lifetime football fan, playing locally back in the 1950’s and a member and season ticket holder at his beloved Burnley FC.
In recognition of Peter’s life and service, Sunday 15th May 2022 saw the inaugural Peter Marsland Trophy at Holmes Park, Luddendenfoot, between Hebden Bridge Saints Under 17s and Saints Under 23s sides. The match is a result of co-operation between Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge and Hebden Bridge Saints.  The Under 23s beat the Under 17s by three goals to two!
Peter's daughters, Helen and Elizabeth, present the trophy to the Saints Under 23s captain.

Rachel Driscoll (2020)

 

For almost single-handedly keeping Calder Holmes Park habitable. 

 

Rachel goes out unpaid litter picking most days and collects great piles of rubbish, broken glass etc.

 

This has been an especially big task over the COVID-19 lock down period.
