Welcome President Jim!

 

 

Knaresborough Rotary Club’s new President is Jim Moorhouse. At a handover ceremony at Nidd Hall Jim Moorhouse thanked outgoing President Richard Booth for all the hard work he had put in over the past year and hoped that the year ahead would be equally as successful.

 

Born in Sheffield, Jim Moorhouse grew up in a mining village near Barnsley and attended Ecclesfield Grammar School before undertaking an engineering apprenticeship with a Sheffield based company. In 1968 Jim joined the Hepworth Ceramic Group as a sales engineer progressing through management, directorships, marketing, commercial, and managing directorships with three market-leading companies in the building material supply industry. In recognition of his work with the Builders Merchants Federation Jim was invited to join their Livery Company and become a Freeman of the City of London in 2012.  He latterly worked as a sales consultant before retiring in 2013.

Jim joined the Knaresborough Rotary Club in January 2011 and has worked with several of the club’s service committees. His interests, outside Rotary, include caravanning, reading, walking his dog, clay pigeon shooting and travel. Jim’s Presidential Charity for the year will be PhysioNet which was started by Knaresborough Rotarian Peter Thompson in 2005 with the aim of providing physiotherapy and mobility equipment for the disabled in developing countries.

Three members honoured with

Paul Harris Awards

Len Clarkson and Maurice Beer are two of the longest serving and oldest members of Knaresborough Rotary Club. Len Clarkson joined the club 37 years ago and was President in 1989-90 whilst Maurice Beer has completed 36 years as a Rotarian and was club President in 1993-4. The presentations were made on behalf of the club by Past District Governor and former club President Em Lloyd-Davies who was in for a surprise himself. A pre-recorded video from the current District Governor Hazel Haas, a member and Past President of Knaresborough Rotary Club, explained that Em was being awarded a Sapphire to add to his existing Paul Harris Fellowship. Em is moving away and will be leaving the club after Easter, as a memento he was also presented with a limited edition print by a local artist Chris Sheldrake, of Knaresborough Christmas Markets in the snow.
