At its Handover Meeting in July President Robert McLaren welcomed Gavin Lloyd as the new President for the Rotary year of 2019/20. Gavin thanked Robert for his year in office and said “It is a great privilege and a challenge to be president of Pembroke Rotary Club. I hope to make the Club more visible in the community and to make sure that we publicise the good work we do locally as well a supporting International Aid”.
Gavin then inducted two new members into the Club – Lisa Ladner and Kathryn Lloyd taking the membership up to 30 active members.
