Rotary praise hero of Hardie Park Rob Groves



ON Thursday evening (December 1st) during the Hardie Park Volunteers Christmas ‘Do’ at The Old Regent Ballroom, Stanford-le-Hope, the Rotary Club of Thurrock Gateway’s President Philip Hills presented a ‘Paul Harris Fellowship'(one of Rotary Internationals most prestigious awards) to Hardie Parks very own Rob Groves…

The Rotary Club recognises that Rob is a passionate, hard working and driven person, who has a deep desire to see transformation in every organisation, community or sphere of influence.

His particular field of interest is local community transformation. He has experience of working across sectors to bring people together to work for common outcomes and objectives, saving time, money and emotional energy, and the transformation of Hardie Park is a great example of his dedication to this local community Cafe and under Rob’s guidance the cafe will be hosting around 30 or so local residents who are on their own for Christmas dinner at The Hardie Park Cafe on Christmas Day…

This is the Rotary Club of Thurrock Gateway’s second ‘Paul Harris Fellowship’ award, last years recipient was the Rev. John Guest of St Margaret’s Church, Stanford Le Hope…

In becoming a Paul Harris Fellow, Rob joins a remarkable company of persons throughout the world, all recognised for their devotion to the ideal of good will, peace and understanding. It is the goal of Rotarian’s the world over, and one that Rob clearly shares.
