Geoffrey clocks up 25 years

A MEMBER of Nailsea and Backwell Rotary Club has been awarded for 25 years of outstanding service.

Geoffrey Irons, who was president of the club in 2007-8, first joined Rotary in Zambia in 1986.

In 2001 he joined the Nailsea and Backwell Rotary Club and has been involved with many international humanitarian projects.

In particular, he has worked tirelessly to enhance Rotary’s involvement with the Mackunduchi Hospital project, taking better medical services to an area of poverty in Zanzibar where life expectancy is just 47.

He has also been an active promoter of the Rotary Young Musician of the Year and a consistent supporter of Nailsea Concert Orchestra.

The award of the Paul Harris Fellowship recognises Geoffrey’s long-term commitment to the ideals of Rotary at home and to the people overseas who desperately need help.
