The District 1040 Environmental Award was presented to The Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix by Past District Governor Nigel Arthurs at the Club’s meeting on Thursday 7th November 2019.

The Shield is awarded annually to the winning Club that has demonstrated effective and beneficial outcomes with projects that involve service to the community, international aid and sustainability.

PDG Nigel said that the evaluation of applications took into consideration the carbon footprint of projects, new concepts and innovation, community impact and enabling the public to enjoy outcomes, personal involvement by Rotarians, preservation of biodiversity and the adoptable replication of ideas.

The award was presented to President Phil Johnson (pictured) who received it on behalf of Rotarian Nick Bardsley (Community and Vocational Chairman) and The Phoenix Rotary Club.
