AS PART of a flood of recognition for Denis Robinson’s 57 years as a reporter with the Dispatch, the veteran newsman was the subject of a special piece on BBC TV’S ‘East Midlands Today’ news programme to mark his retirement.

The Dispatch legend called time on a remarkable career with the paper on Friday January 21. A fitting curtain-call was a packed-out retirement party at the Rolls-Royce Leisure Club off Watnall Road in Hucknall.

But this week, ‘East Midlands Today’ reporter Quentin Rayner took the time to spend an afternoon with Our Denis’ as he finally got the chance to put his feet up.
