President of RIBI, Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland, Nan McCreadle and her husband Denis Phipps paid a visit to Market Rasen Rotary Club as part of their whistle-stop tour of the area.
“It has been wonderful to welcome Nan and Denis to Market Rasen today,” said President Elect of the Market Rasen Club Stuart Davis.
“Her talk was inspirational.”
During her address, Ms McCreadle said: “It is a simple message; it is all about doing what you as Rotarians do best - helping our communities.”
But she also said she believed things have to change.
“You need to be sure that when you have gone, there are people to take you place,” she said.
“And I believe to do that, we have to change with the times and make sure it is made more attractive for people.”
During her presidential year, Ms McCreadle is also looking to promote the Rotary Foundation.
“I am a great supporter of the Rotary Foundation and am helping to make sure everyone knows about the Rotarians own charity.”
Ms Creadle was accompanied on her visit by District Governor Simon Kalson and his wife Jackie.
