The evening started with a tribute to the late Dick Callow, a stalwart of the Deepings business community for over 60 years who died last week. Dick was the recipient of the inaugural lifetime achievement award and the room drank a toast to his memory and passed its condolences to the Callow family.

Nick Ash, the compere for the evening, went on to speak about some of the community and enterprise projects that the Deepings Business Club had been engaged with over the past year detailing the club’s support for the Deepings School, the Youth Group and the Deepings Rugby Club.
