Our President


.

Our President for the Rotary year 2016-17 is Chris Davies.

I spent my life in the commercial world, selling production equipment worldwide to the largest well known electronics manufactures. In this work I travelled extensively throughout the world. I moved to Dorchester in the early 1980's and I have been a member of Casterbridge Rotary Club for 12 years. I waited until I retired to take the Presidency of the Club. 

I am a passionate Welsh rugby supporter, which as you can imagine generates some friendly rivalry with other club members. I also took up running at age 62 and have completed 2 half marathons.

I have a particular interest in encouraging the young people of Dorchester to reach their potential. I have recently been involved in a successful bid to take over the running of the Dorchester Youth and Community Centre. 

I am also involved in the committee, which is organising the first Dorchester Marathon in May 2017.

I see in Rotary a great opportunity to support the wider community in Dorchester.
