July - being traditionally the month during which our President for the following year is welcomed to the post, saw the first Meeting of the month - Wednesday 10th turned over to the official changeover.

After a short business meeting covering any urgent items, outgoing President - Lion Chris Lambert handed over the Chain of Office to Lion Chris Eglington.

Our new President brings to the post the experience of his four previous years in that position, which he has held over his many years with the Club.

The Club unanimously voiced their appreciation for Past President Chris Lambert’s very successful year of Office, which saw the instigation of the Annual Fun Run plus expansion of other activities such as the popular Barbeque Stall and the pleasure of arranging the successful celebration of our 50th Charter Anniversary Evening.

The first official duty of President Chris Eglington’s year of office was the induction of a new Member - Dulcie McDonald into the Club.
