A Rotary spokesman said: “This award, which is normally given to Rotarians for outstanding work for Rotary, is also given rarely to individuals for their contribution to their local community.

“No fewer than 45 groups use the Shakespeare Hall and they all owe a great deal to David for the service he has given them.”
