Burton upon Trent - Keyworth & Ruddington 30th July

Today started off with a Strategy Meeting with Peter Moralee and Steve Lawes at the Novotel in Long Eaton.   The aim is to make sure we are all three aware of all the latest news and issues involving the District and to work on the three year Strategy Plan.   

When this meeting finished at 11.30am Gail and I drove straight over to the Pirelli Stadium at Burton for a meeting of the Rotary Club of Burton.   The pitch is looking in fine form!  I was made very welcome by the Club and after the meal I addressed the members present.   Many thanks to President William for his company and for the hospitality of the Club.

By 5.30pm Gail and I were setting off for the meeting of The Rotary Club of Keyworth and Ruddington, where the President, past District Governor Tony Stimpson welcomed us to the club.     After a very nice meal and the usual club business I addressed the Club about this year's theme, "Peace through Service".     President Tony gave the vote of thanks, although most of his thunder had been taken by the other past District Governor in the Club, Roy Parsons.

Thanks to everyone for making us both so welcome.  Particular thanks to Gail for sitting through my talk again and for driving today.
