Club President 2024 – 2025 - Mike Lakin




Born in Coventry, spending his pre-teens there, Oxford and Nuneaton. His father worked in local government for various councils in the Midlands before moving the family to South Bucks in the mid 1970’s resulting in his secondary education at Slough Grammer School.
 
Prior to his retirement, Mike’s career was in Information Technology as a technical specialist working for a variety of large/corporate companies. His more recent roles were as an IT Manager within financial applications and database technologies for a corporate software company based in Reading.
 
Mike is married to Ann and they have a daughter called Jodie. Mike enjoys spending his time with his10 year old Grandson, Ted.
 
For pleasure, Mike enjoys playing snooker (not very well) and the casual riding of his collection of bicycles with the secondary benefit of fitness, but in reality, just getting some fresh air in the lovely Hampshire countryside. He also enjoys repair and fixing up bikes, was meant to be just his own but does seem to be a hobby that his friends and family benefit from.
 
Alongside various Rotary club activities, Mike is also a trustee at the Loddon School, Sherfield-on-Loddon, a residential school, home for children aged 8 – 19 with profound autism, who are non-verbal and have severe learning difficulties, resulting in highly challenging behaviours.
