A fitting tribute

At a recent meeting of the Club it was agreed to honour the life of the late Rotarian Dr Gruff Jones with an annual award at Ysgol Trefynnon, Holywell.
Dr Gruff was a dedicated GP at Pendre Surgery in Holywell and a long serving member of the Rotary Club. He passed to higher service in March aged 82.
Long serving Rotarian Barry Harrison commented that “ Gruff was a popular and well-respected GP in Holywell and served his patients with his caring support and more importantly his ability in always taking time to listen and carefully respond to the needs of those in need of the NHS. As an additional role he served the profession for many years as Secretary of the N Wales Medical Committee and during my 10year tenure as Chair the Local Health Board was constructive in support of improving services for the local community. A colleague and friend sorely missed”

For many years Rotary have sponsored an annual award to a student, chosen by the school. Who has made a significant contribution to community life both in school and in the wider community. It is now fitting to now dedicate this award to a true gentleman who, in his professional career, has given to so many.

The award will be presented at the school on July 8th
