Nominations are invited for the second annual Robert Lauberts Award.
Rob, a hard-working supporter of Boston in Bloom, died in 2015 after a short battle with cancer.
He worked tirelessly alongside his wife, Rachel, on improvements to Boston, especially the revamp of Custom House Quay and the garden at the Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex. He was also the enthusiastic chairman of Main Ridge East Placecheck Group, secretary of Boston Greenscapers, chairman of Boston Big Local Boosting Local Economy Group and chairman of Boston Community Forum. He was driven in his volunteering efforts by a passion to make Boston a better place to live.
The first winner last year of the engraved cup presented by Rob’s widow, Rachel, in his memory, was Rodney Bowles who had worked alongside Rob and described him as “a kindred spirit”.
They are also available from reception at Boston Borough Council’s offices at Municipal Buildings in West Street. All nominations need to be with Maddy Eyre, The Robert Lauberts Award, Municipal Buildings, West Street, Boston, PE21 8QR, by Wednesday, May 31, 2017
Nominations should recognise commitment to community or environmental endeavour.
The judging panel will be looking for a nominee who has been a volunteer and made a significant contribution in the Boston town area – the part of the borough not covered by its own parish council.
The Robert Lauberts Award will be presented at the Boston in Bloom Judging Tour Event at Fydell House, Boston in July 2017. Exact date to be confirmed.
