‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Phil Shephard and Tony Roberts win Local Awards

Two Newark Community!


I've always said our Trustees are real community people. Two of them received Newark Awards for their brilliant service in Newark last Friday.


Tony Roberts was nominated for his "Life Time Service" to Newark people. Yet another honour to go with his CBE. Tony puts his heart into all aspects of Newark life but still finds time to give us a morning a week with our younger readers. Well deserved Tony!


What can anyone say about Phil Shephard? The man is a "Giver" and everyone's first port of call for help with just about anything. Phil devotes many, many extra hours beyond his job description as "Site Manager", be it sport or concerts, whenever an extra pair of hands is needed you know he'll be there for you. Abigail and William Parsons nominated him for "Services to Education" but you could nominate him for any of a million things.


I'm retiring but ,"My goodness!" your school is in great hands with those two!
