Club President 2018 - 2019Rotarian Julian Ricketts took over as President of the Rotary Club of Basingstoke Deane in July 2018 from Lindy Richardson.
2018-19 President Julian Ricketts
Julian Ricketts is serving his second term as Club President for Basingstoke Deane Rotary, having previously been president in 2012/2013. The highlight of Julian's Rotary career was being awarded with a Paul Harris Fellowship in 2018 for service to the community and bringing Rotary into the 21st century with a creative approach to social media.
Julian has 5 pet rabbits and a pond full of fish. He is an experienced archer and one of his best memories is volunteering for the Archery at the 2012 London Olympics. He also makes a great BBQ pit-boss and his slow-roasting is legendary! And his profile would not be complete without mentioning Julian's obsession with all things "Star Wars".
May the force be with Rotary and peace the galaxy over!
