Mrs May said "It's a great honour, Rotary does a fantastic job locally and internationally. Its service before self and working in local communities and I'm particualrly interested in the international work in modern slavery.  I've done a lot of her in bringing legislation, so the work Rotary is doing to support victims of slavery to help us eradicate it is important.

Mrs May and Phillip are the club's first honorary members and John Clegg said "We are extremely pleased that Mrs May and her husband have become honorary members.  This will help us promote our charitable and community work in the town.
