9.30am on 19th now and just getting ready to drive to Manchester Airport to pick up the GSE Team on their return from Nepal. Can't wait to hear all about what they have been doing.
Last night I went to the 85th Charter Anniversary celebrations of the Rotary Club of Matlock, held at St. Elphin's House, Audley St. Elphin's Park at Darley Dale (a recent smart venue). Sheilagh Harnan and Peter Shepherd were accompanying me again this evening.
This was a traditional Charter Dinner with a Rotary Speaker. That speaker being Nan McCreadie the RIBI President Elect from the Rotary Club of Feltham.
The effort and care put into the preparation of the toasts, this evening, by President Elect Cynthia Machent, Rotarian Dianne Blount, by Richard cater, RC of Bakewell and indeed by the Club President peter Wigglesworth was inspirational. The evening went like clockwork and although it was not in any sense rushed, we finished at 10. 30pm - quite an achievement.
I would like to thank everyone concerned for making this a memorable evening.
