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.
