Returning late in the morning from an overnight stay at Newark, following Newark Castle's Charter, I was unable to attend the funeral service of Rtn. Roget Barrett, a past District Governor. This was held at St. Mary's Church at Bunny. PDG Neil Sharman kindly agreed to stand in for me on this occasion. My grateful thanks to him.
In the evening I chaired the District Executive meeting, held at the Novotel, Long Eaton. The Executive meeting is where any issues concerning the running of the District are aired before going to the District Council. During the meeting we held some excellent discussions on the state of health of the clubs in the District as well as looking at various other matters that are coming up in the future.
