Event honours communities

Have your say

COMMUNITY groups from across Rotherham are set to be honoured for the ‘excellent work’ carried out on behalf of their local neighbourhoods.

Honours will be handed out at Rotherham Federation of Tenants and Residents (Rotherfed) Quality Awards, on Tuesday, June 22, at Springwell Gardens Community Centre, Eastwood View, from 5pm.

Steve Ruffle, of Rotherfed, said: “The awards will recognise the many hours of unpaid work members of tenants’ and residents’ associations have put into improving their local communities.”

There are five categories of awards, for management, communication with the public, financial control, community involvement and equalities.

Mr Ruffle added: “Now in their fifth year, the awards not only recognise the hard work of the 38 TARAs affiliated to RotherFed, but are designed to improve quality standards by providing examples of excellence.”
