The Installation Ceremony marked the end of an exceptional year for the club under the presidency of Simon Johnson. He has initiated a root and branch examination of club procedure and practice and improved the structure of communication both within the club and with the community. £23,000 has been made available for the local and international community needs, making a huge difference in both arenas.

It was a great Rotary year, enjoyable and successful, with much work done with local youth and schools, and support for projects in Nepal and Uganda and a superbly organised international Contact Weekend that culminated in a final dinner held in the Precincts of Canterbury Cathedral.

Ian Bell, the incoming President, paid tribute to Simon’s hard work and vision and promised to build on his legacy. A particular project for the coming year was the development for leisure purposes of the Triangle in Hythe. Ian was presented with a Club Flag that could flutter proudly at club events and indicate the positive presence of the Rotary Club of Hythe.
