New President, Paul Harris Fellow DAVID HEARNSHAW is congratulated by outgoing President, Tony Orpwood

The Rotary Club of Westgate and Birchington inducted their new President at their recent meeting held at St. Augustines College.   Some eighty people attended the meal and they consisted of Club Rotarians, their wives, members of The Inner Wheel Club and representatives from all the Thanet Clubs and their wives and friends. They saw Paul Harris fellow David Hearnshaw take over from Tony Orpwood for the next twelve months.  In his report David said that there was a busy programme of events planned ahead, during which he would be supporting OASIS, which is the local Charity supporting those suffering from domestic abuse, The Leukaemia and Lymphoma Trust, The Salvation Army and The Alfie Gough Trust. Apart from fund raising at various events during the year we shall continue with the Christmas collections, the Come Dine With Me evenings at members homes and the Strictly Come Rotary, the popular dance event in the Spring.
