The Rotary Club of Chesterfield gave the honour of citizen of the year to two people for their “unselfish service to the local community”.

Barbara Harrison and David Botham were this year’s joint recipients of the club’s annual Citizen of the Year Award.

Past-president David Windle, who hosted the award ceremony, said: “Through the charitable work undertaken the two have brought much pleasure to so many people over so many years.”

He also congratulated them on their efforts in leading a Saturday Singalong for the residents of Harehills Court, Grangewood, every week since the home opened 22 years ago.

He added: “This is an event that is much loved and eagerly anticipated each week by the enthusiastic participants of the home.”

Barbara said: “This was a complete surprise and something I never expected.”

David added: “This unexpected award by the Rotary Club is so very much appreciated – thank you.”
