The Rotary Club of Washington met in the Black Bush to present its Community Service Award, which is awarded each year to an individual who has shown outstanding continued community commitment within Washington.

This year’s award went to Richard Bell, who is branch chairman of Washington’s Royal British Legion. Richard explained that he was a Washington man through and through and always did what he could to enhance Washington’s standing in the North East and actively encourages the young to take part, so as not to forget those who fought for them. He said he was honoured to be chosen for this award.
