Past Presidents Sue Peskett and David Dillamore of Calne Rotary handed over the reigns to the new President for 2019/20, Denise Addison.
Denise moved from Charlton Down, Dorset to Calne in April last year to be closer to family, transferring from Dorchester Casterbridge Rotary. She says that although Calne club has a much smaller membership than Dorchester, it’s aims are the same – to unite together and create change. She is determined that the Bowood Fun Run and Classic Car Run will continue to be the two major fund raising events of the year together with an emphasis on ‘service above self’ for the community. She has found in Calne a very friendly welcome and particularly in her fellow members. She says that Sue and David worked tirelessly over the past year, always with a smile and she would encourage anyone interested in serving their community, to look at joining Rotary and particularly the Calne Club.
