Wensleydale Rotarians turned out in force - and travelled three hours by minibus - for John Alcock's induction into Sale Rotary Club. John, a second generation Rotarian, transfered to Sale after 12 years with the North Yorkshire club. He's pictured below with Sale president Harvey Kesler and Wensleydale president Phil Oliver - who took the opportunity to honour John's service with a Paul Harris Fellowship - one of the highest awards in Rotary.
SANTA IN SALE
Sale Rotary Club helped Santa to land safely when he visited the shopping centre to support local independent traders during their festive late night opening at the outlet store.
Sale's 'scatter night' to the Glossop, Alsager and Wilmslow clubs brought together Glossop's longest-serving Rotarian, Peter Wood with 47 years, and Sale's then newest member, Carl Cleghorn - with just a month under his belt.
