West Bridgford Rotary Club 22nd August

This evening I had the pleasure of visiting the Rotary Club of West Bridgford at the Country Cottage Hotel at Ruddington.     President Graham Wright from the Rotary Club of Belper and Duffield accompanied me on the visit.
On arrival we were met by a number of club members who all made us feel exceedingly welcome.     The "buzz" in the meeting was tangible with an informal approach to the proceedings of the night.  Here is a Rotary Club in which the members truly enjoy each other's company and enjoy doing what they do.   Pleasingly the staff of the Hotel had to set up an extra table to accommodate the number of club members (and one non Rotarian guest - a potential new Rotarian) who had come to the meeting

President George Golledge ran the meeting in a quiet, relaxed but efficient manner dealing a a few matters of business in a most effectyive manner.  Once the tables had been cleared away after an excellent meal George introduced me.  I then spoke for 20 minutes about Rotary and the theme for 2012 / 13, "Peace through Service".      Afterwards I was thanked by Rotarian Brin Chawler.

My sincere thanks go to President George and all the members of the Rotary Club of West Bridgford for making the evening so enjoyable and for their very positive attitude towards Rotary.   Thanks also to President Graham Wright for driving me to the club
