Baldock Rotary Club has bestowed a prestigious award on garden centre owner Graham Tapp in recognition of his community work.
Graham, who runs Tapps Garden Centre, was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship – a Rotarian award usually given to their own – for establishing and running the Green Shoots project to teach horticultural skills to disadvantaged youngsters.
Presenting the award, immediate past president Robert Cusworth said: “Tapps Garden Centre is in competition with the established national chains, who have considerable resources at their disposal to hold a strong position in a highly competitive market.
“For Graham to have brought the Green Shoots project to fruition, with minimal outside financial and practical help, whilst running and developing his own business is a clear example of an exceptional contribution to the community.
“Baldock Rotary Club is delighted to be able to grant this recognition to Graham.”
