After spending the morning writing my Newsletter for September (which incidentally it is very important that all Presidents read) at lunch Gail and I joined a number of Club Presidents and Presidents Elect at "The Lighthouse" Restaurant at Boyleston, near Church Broughton in Derbyshire for Sunday lunch.
The lunch was the idea of the Presidents in one of their regular meetings with their Assistant Governor Colin Gell (also present with his wife Annie). The restaurant is owned by the President Elect of Etwall and Hilton, Robert Heed, who allowed us exclusive use of the premises.
The meal was completely social, with no Rotary input, other than the conversation around the tables. It provided an ideal venue for people from different clubs to mix and socialise in a relaxed environment.
The meal (I had duck) was absolutely faultless, as were the premises themselves and the service we all received. Many thanks to Robert and to the staff at the restaurant. It made a nice interlude from Rotary.
