Members of Market Rasen Rotary Club joined their fellow Rotarians at Brigg for their 44th Charter Luncheon held at Hemswell Court.

The occasion celebrated the founding of the Brigg Rotary Club, which was highly praised for its charity work by two senior officials of Rotary International.

“You as a club do a tremendous amount of hard work,” said District Governor Robin Mason.

“Your funding of aqua boxes, involvement with trade aid and with the water project in the Philippines are three examples - this is what Rotary is all about.”

Chief guest and speaker was the immediate past president of Rotary in Britain and Ireland (RIBI), Ray Burman.

Two long serving members were thanked for their distinguished contribution to the club - Keith Alston has retired after long service as Secretary, while Arthur Borrill received the Paul Harris Scholarship for services to Rotary.

In his address, Club President Tony Forbes said: “We have the best members we could ever hope for. I am immensely proud to be the Brigg President. The club is thriving and we are continuing to recruit members.”
