After a couple of weeks break from most things Rotary, my first job of 2013 was one tinged with sadness, I am sure that you will all be aware of the sudden and unexpected passing of Rotarian Malcolm Whitt shortly before Christmas. I attended a Thanksgiving Service to celebrate Malcolm's life, held at Kingswood Methodist Church at Wollaton on 3rd January.
With the church filled to capacity with about 350 people present this certainly brought home to me just how well thought of and respected by his peers Malcolm was.
A number of people, including Mike Lucas representing Rotary, spoke about their recollections of Malcolm. It was a beautiful service and am sure that seeing so many friends there to celebrate Malcolm's life will have been heartwarming for Joyce and the family.
