Society management committee member and local Rothrham lad, Steve Bradwell, met with the Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Robert Taylor, to present the Society’s certificate of commendation and appreciation to Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council in recognition of their efforts organising this year’s official Yorkshire Day Civic Celebration.
This, now traditional thank you to the host council, represents a formal end to the host council’s responsibilities.
The citation on the certificate reads “In recognition of the exemplary way they discharged their duties organising the official Yorkshire Day Civic Celebration for 1st August 2023”.
At the meeting, both the Society and the Council exchanged feedback on the event which took place on 1st August 2023. Lessons learned will be passed on to the host council for the following year’s event, which in 2024 is York.
Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) are corporate members of the Society and so the Society will continue to work with them and in particular help support the Mayor’s fundraising efforts wherever possible.
