Three Members of West Wirral have served as District Governors.

 VERNON SCHWARZ was West Wirral's third District Governor, serving during the Rotary Year 2008-2009.

Together with his wife Jenny, he carried out 383 Rotary events during the year.

He was supported superbly by club members in a variety of ways.

-Frank Dobson organised his transport rota, arranging over 100 lifts and over 30 drivers.

-Cees Parmentier, John Jewsbury, Keith Foggin and Ray Frobisher played leading roles in running the District Conference at Llandudno, helping to bring home the attendance trophy.

Five new clubs were chartered during the year, a District record and the most in Rotary GB&I during that year. The new clubs were at Machynlleth, Ormskirk Clocktower, Saughall, Liverpool City and Royden Revolve.

He was Liaison Governor on the Youth Opportunities committee and became Rotary GB&I Interact Officer in 2009-2010


Our other two Governor's were Harry Griffith and Len Kader. Regretably I am not able to to publish here the details of their years because these shy, retiring Rotarians have still to provide me with the 'highlights' of their years.
