On Saturday, 2nd February, John Wand and the team at Roadphone NRB were delighted to receive the centennial plaque award from Bourne Lions, in recognition of our contribution to the local community. 

2017 saw the Centenary of Lions Clubs International, and as part of the celebrations each Lions Club was tasked to nominate individuals from the local community that had given outstanding service over a period of time. 

When presenting the award, Jake Jacobs of the Bourne Lions highlighted Roadphone NRB’s commitment over the last 30 years to the Santa’s Sleigh run, providing a vehicle, lights and a PA system. More recently, Roadphone NRB has provided GPS tracking for the sleigh so that local families can view Santa’s location online throughout December. 

Jake also mentioned our recent work in November 2018 to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One. In the weeks leading up to Armistice Day, the team designed, built and installed over 30 wooden silhouettes of soldiers, along with illuminating the Town Hall, and providing a PA system, production and poppy shower on the Memorial Gardens for Remembrance Sunday. 

We would like to thank the Bourne Lions for presenting us with this award, and also recognise the many other people and organisations who carry out great work for our town.
