PresMarkThe Club are delighted to welcome Mark Davidson as President for the year 2018/19.

Worldwide we also support the fight to ‘End Polio Now’, help restore sight in underdeveloped countries and through ShelterBox and AquaBox aid those in distress overseas. 

We appreciate the tremendous amount of service already given by members but are looking forward to encouraging new members to join. Any prospective member is most welcome at any of our Monday meetings.
