West Bridgford Charter Night 21st November 2012

After the enjoyment of the joint meeting of Heanor and Ilkeston on Monday evening, it was back to the business side of things on the Tuesday with the District Exercutive meeting, held at The Novotel.    The usual agenda items, including of course an update on the re-districting and nothing out of the ordinary to report.

On Wednesday, 21st November I attended the Charter celebrations of the Rotary Club of West Bridgford, accompanied by Gail and Rotarians Nick Blurton (the driver for the night) and Graham Wright.

Traffic into and through Nottingham was pretty awful and so we arrived at the Country Cottage Hotel and Restaurant at Ruddington just after 7pm,but in time for pre-dinner drinks.

President George Golledge was an excellent host, with his wife, Sheila.  The main speaker for the evening was Judy Naake who was also excellent company.

Judy spoke about her experiences growing up in Nottingham and through to being the owner of the San Tropez fake tap company, enlightening us with her encounters with Tony Blair, the Beckhams and several other well known personalities.

Thanks to President George and all the members of the Club for inviting us this evening - even if you did manage to miss Gail and I off the roll call of clubs.
