Outgoing President Ian expressed his thanks to all members for a year of remarkable progress and activity, in spite of recent months under lockdown.
He spoke of the social activities, a remarkable Dragon Boat day last July, fundraising successes, a new website, and the embracing of technology by the vast majority of members who have taken to Zoom and enabled fellowship (of sorts) to continue.

Incoming President Kevin Grogan expressed his thanks to Ian for his excellent year of stewardship through what had turned out to be very challenging times.
He then explained his thinking about the future, the need to keep moving forward and think about the "new normal", reflecting Rotary International's areas of focus and marketing ourselves as an attractive proposition for potential new, and younger, members.
