On Saturday, January 19, Wymondham Town Council awarded its annual Civic Award to Barry Rooks at a reception held at the Dell bowls club on Norwich Road.

Fellow volunteer Steve Lyne joined the founder at the ceremony and they dedicated the award to the team of men behind the conversion of their current headquarters at The Arc on Ayton Road.

Following the presentation hosted by mayor Tony Holden, Mr Rooks said he was feeling optimistic about securing the essential funding to keep the project running and that receiving the award would help with future funding bids.

Mr Holden said the council had unanimously agreed that the 2019 award should go to the project and that they hoped it would help make more men aware of the service.
