4 July 2019District Governor David Hood

Before the DG presentation, joint Presidents Maggie and Jane announced that our Club had received a new District Award, the Cheryle Berry RotaKids Award, to be shared with Retford RC.

David gave us some background information on himself, showing his worldwide work as Export Manager of Coats Viyella, more latterly with East Midlands Chamber of Commerce on Trade Missions.  He also accompanied our 2013 GSE team on the trip to Nepal. Born in Glasgow, he had links with youth with Cubs, Scouts, Youth Club Leader, moving on to Round Table, moving to Derbyshire 25 years ago, training a young Rugby squad. He moved on to his Rotary visit to the New Presidents Convention, showing us a 2 minute video from Mark Maloney that inspired the new ‘strap line’ of “Rotary connects the World” and out lining the objective of “Grow Rotary”.  David was taking up the challenge working with The Chamber of Commerce and promoting the Corporate Social Responsibility programme/opportunities.

Overall an energetic, inspiring presentation that reflects his personality.

Maggie then gave a heartfelt ‘Vote of Thanks’, suggesting that his District Conference Theme of “The Difference is you” should provide a platform to grow Rotary driven by his dynamic, cheerful personality. She confessed to being born in Scotland herself, being a Scottish Highland dancer and looking forward to a “Gay Gordons” at the Conference with David?!                                                                                       MF/AR
