A new president for the rotary club in Nailsea and Backwell has been chosen.

Chris Bales has handed over the reigns to John Hall.

Rotary Nailsea and Backwell has recruited a number of new members this year, and Chris said his experience as president had been challenging and stimulating.

John’s ambitions for the year ahead are to maintain the club’s high profile and ensure there are always fun things for members to do.

The programme for the forthcoming year will include social events, outings to places of interest and fundraising services.

John intends to run the club in a relaxed way, with less formality.

His charity of the year will be the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Anyone interested in joining the club, which has been running for more than 40 years, can contact Graham Hunt on 07970 771845 or for more details.
