Long-serving Tickhill Horticultural Society member Roy Lawton has been presented with gardening vouchers by his fellow members in recognition of all the work he has done for the society since it first started.
Mr Lawton has had to step down from the committee due to ill health.
The society is entering the town’s second annual two-day scarecrow festival taking place on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1.
Sylvia Taylor is coordinating the society’s entry and any assistance that can be given to make the scarecrow will be welcomed.
The society has also organised a coach trip to Newark Garden Show on Sunday, April 17, with tickets costing £10 for transport and entry to the show. Bookings can be made by calling 01302 742 696.
