First Rotary Club outside of North America and the Deputy Chief Constable

President Elect Richard was pleased to welcome David Johnson – a Shropshire Lad living in London and 20 visitors from the Rotary Club of London (the first Rotary Club outside of North America to receive a charter) to Wellington Rotary’s meeting at the Buckatree Hall Hotel on Friday lunchtime, 17 June (the penultimate meeting to be held at the hotel).

Unfortunately traffic congestion meant that some were a little late but they arrived in time to listen to Deputy Chief Constable Julian Moss give an entertaining insight into his career from a physics graduate starting in law enforcement in Bristol to his current office with West Mercia Police.

Rotarian Peter Williams gave the vote of thanks.

President Tom, who was isolating at home, was one of several club members who joined the meeting on Zoom. Also present at the hotel were District Governor Robyn Davies, Assistant Governor Graham Dean and Trevor Davies of Wrekin Rotary who greeted the two clubs.

After the close of the meeting the Londoners went for a stroll up the Wrekin to be followed, in the evening, by a wine tasting event at Tanners in Shrewsbury.
