Baldock Rotary Club welcomed its new president and vice-president in a ceremony at Letchworth Golf Club.

Forty-eight Rotary members, their partners and guests gathered for a meal, after which outgoing president Thom Odd handed over the reins to new president Keith Britter.

Thom spoke about the highlights of his time as president, such as taking Father Christmas in his sleigh around Baldock, turning on Christmas lights, developing the second Rotary wood and providing generators to Ukraine.

Keith thanked Thom for an excellent year, and went on to say that the club would strive to attract new members.

Social outings will again feature on the agenda, and in September the club will celebrate its 70th charter night anniversary.


Keith inducted Garry Blythe as the new vice president, and the evening concluded with Keith presenting a bouquet to Chris Odd for her support of the club and of her husband Thom during his year of office.

As the new Rotary year begins this month, Baldock Rotary will continue to support the local community, as well as people further afield through their international links.
