LYME Regis youngster Jacob Denning was praised for his efforts and achievements in school as he said goodbye to St Michael’s Primary.
At the school’s annual leavers’ service, Jacob was presented with the Frank Mayes Award by the Rotary Club of Lyme Regis. The award, named after the club’s first president, is presented to the student who, in the opinion of the headteacher, has made the greatest stride forward at the school.
Commenting on Jacob’s achievement’s, headteacher Nick Kiddle said: “This year’s award is very much deserved by a child who has stood out from the very first day he came to school and will be appreciated by himself, family, friends and all the staff.”
Current Rotary president John Berry and youth chairman Chris Buckingham attended the leavers’ service and made the presentation to Jacob.
He and his elder brother, Joshua, are well known to Rotary for the tremendous efforts they make each year in collecting for the Lyme Regis Lunge on New Year’s Day, as well as for Lifeboat Week, Regatta & Carnival Week and other local causes.
