Welcome to Andrew Priest.....

Andrew, a local solicitor, has lived in Suffolk with his wife, son (aged 5 and a half) and two dogs for 3 years. 

Having managed the daily commute to London for 18 months every day he relocated to Cambridge as he wanted to see more of his family.

He always said that we wanted to live in a village community and he is now very fortunate to have a good group of new friends in and around his village.  He and his family regularly participate in the various events which take place at the local village hall (a curry/quiz evening and a wine tasting being two recent examples), most of which is to raise monies for charities and other good causes.

Andrew is Partner (Head of Technology) at Hewitsons LLP and mostly based in the Cambridge office although he does have to make the occasional journeys to their other offices in London, Northampton and Milton Keynes.

Andrew Priest is inducted by the new president of the Rotary Club of Cambridge, Julian Landy.


We welcomed Clare Waterhouse as a new member.

Clare grew up in Kent and worked in management before re-training in law, graduating in 1999.

She then worked in law and property before setting up her own relocation business in 2007. She has been running Cambridge Property Search for the last 10 years and is the relocation consultant for Cambridge University and Judge Business School.

Clare is welcomed into the Rotary Club of Cambridge  by past president PeterJones.

Helping charities at home and abroad...

This month we handed over a cheque for £2,000 to Alzheimer's Research UK. Jessica Sayer, Regional Fundraising Officer collected the cheque and said "We are so grateful to the Rotary Club of Cambridge for supporting us - fantastic fund raising will help us defeat dementia sooner."
