After doing some work and paying an overdue visit to my sister, Jennifer and her husband Bob in the afternoon I made my way to the centre of Nottingham for the meeting of the oldest Club in the District, The Rotary Club of Nottingham, who I was proudly and reliably informed are six weeks older than Derby. Nottingham meet in the Crowne Plaza Hotel where they eat in one of the restaurants and then move to a meeting room to conduct their business.
President Peter was an excellent host, making me most welcome. After giving my talk I answered several questions from the floor before we said the final toast. After the meeting I accompanied several members to The Heart and Hand pub on Derby Road for a pint of real ale, which, with the heat of the day went down very well.

My thanks to the members of both clubs for making me so welcome and to Rt. John Lowe for accompanying me and acting as driver.
