Hyde Rotary Club stalwart Barry Carey has been presented with his second Paul Harris Rotary Sapphire award.

Barry, who has been a member for 30 years and President on two occasions, received his recognition from Dr Vik Tanna last Thursday.

During his three year term as chair of the Community Committee, Barry has organised the annual Christmas Sleigh and Last Night at the Proms plus the Foundation Brunch.

Speaking after receiving the honour – the top in Rotary – in front of members from all the Tameside Clubs, Barry said: “I enjoy my Rotary work. I feel proud to receive this accolade but at the end of the day it’s a team effort.”
