Retired Tuakau business owner Alwyn Marshall has received an extraordinary honour from Rotary International.
He received a Paul Harris Fellow sapphire pin for 51 years of service to the community through Rotary.
He’s been a Rotarian for as long as the Tuakau club has existed and very few Rotarians around the world have reached that many years in any club.
“Alwyn’s always there, quietly working away in the background doing what needs to be done,” says Tuakau Rotary Mike Stewart of the new Fellow.
“He fixes what needs fixing, delivers trailer loads of firewood, fires the barbecue.”

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
