1st July marks the start of the new Rotary year, and we usually like to combine the transfer of leadership with a presentation to an organisation for whom we have raised funds during the year.

At this year's Handover, before passing the baton to his successors, outgoing President Richard presented a cheque for £500 to Gill and Henry Clark of First Responders, a group of volunteers who provide invaluable emergency assistance in our communities, and who are entirely funded by donation.

Having completed his duties, Richard then handed over to Pat and Maureen, who will be Joint Presidents for the next 12 months.

Pat and Maureen's first duty as Joint Presidents was to induct Glen Foreman into our club.  Glen is an experienced Rotarian who has transferred from another club, and we are pleased to welcome her.
