Club President 2015 - 2016

Rotarian Paul Temple took over as President of the Rotary Club of Basingstoke Deane in July 2015 from Rod Clarke. 

Paul Retired 9 years ago from the company that he set up with his business partner in 1980. In that time the company grew to employ over 100 people and received a Royal Warrant in recognition of the high quality services provided to the Queen.

Alongside that he progressed from a keen parent supporter of Basingstoke Gymnastic Club to become a qualified coach, eventually becoming the Chief Coach of the Club between 1987 and 1992. He has  continued, firstly as Chairman and now as a director of the Club. In that time the Gym Club has moved premises 3 times to it’s now dedicated facility at the Active Life Centre and has grown from a membership of 70 to over 2000.   He received the Service to Sport award at the 2012 Basingstoke Sports Awards and received a Community Service Award from the High Sheriff of Hampshire in 2014.

He joined Rotary 5 years ago, feeling he could be more useful in the Community working with others of a like mind.   Paul has organised the Rotary International Boxing tournament, one of the Club’s main fundraising events, for the last 2 years
The highest Rotary Award, a 'Paul Harris Fellowship', was awarded to Paul in 2013 for his work with Basingstoke Gymnastic Club.
