THE start of the Rotary year saw Andrew Parsons taking over as president of Leominster Rotary Club from Mike Foyle.

In the past year Leominster Rotary Club have been able to support a variety of local charities including Marches Family Network, Air Ambulance, and Leominster Museum. This has only been possible with the wonderful support of the local community and their very generous donations at Rotary fund raising events.

At the same meeting, Andrew inducted a new member to Rotary, Angela Lloyd. Angela has recently moved back to the area and will bring additional ideas to the club in terms of helping within the community.

Leominster Rotary Club meets on the first and third Tuesday of the month at Leominster Golf Club (6pm for 6.30pm) and potential members are always welcome.

The membership officer is Geoffrey Crofts and he can be contacted on 01568 615706 or email
