KINVER'S 'MAN OF FLOWERS' IS NEW ROTARY CLUB PRESIDENT


By Ian Maddock - Posted on 26 August 2013

Kinver Rotary Club's new President, Nick Geoghegan

 Nick Geoghegan, the Kinver resident who won the village Civic Society’s award for services to the community through his dedication to enhancing the High Street with floral decorations, is the new President of the Rotary Club of Kinver.

 Having started his career in accountancy he moved into engineering and manufacturing, primarily in the steel sectors in companies such as forges and steel stockholders where his training in finance helped him attain the positions of Finance Director, Commercial Director and finally Managing Director of a small engineering group situated on the edge of the Jewellery quarter.

 Latterly Nick has become an Employer Adviser with the DWP, leading the Engineering/Manufacturing sectors for the Dudley Borough.

 Nick and his wife Denise moved from Birmingham to Kinver in the early 90s and joined the Rotary Club of Kinver in 2008, since when he has twice been Treasurer and was last year’s Vice President.

 Nick, who is a former vice chairman of the village’s Allotment Association, can be seen regularly on the High Street with his wife watering floral hanging baskets and generally tidying the frontages in support of the drive for “Best Kept Village” in which the Rotary Club has been a major supporter.

 Nick’s first major fund raising event will be a joint project with the Rotary Club of Hagley – a concert at Kidderminster Town Hall on Friday Sept 20, featuring the Band of the West Midlands Fire Service supported by the Stourport Choral Society.  They will be presenting a programme of light classics, music from Andrew Lloyd Webber shows, the films and finishing with a selection from Last Night of the Proms.

 Tickets costing £10 are available from Kinver Post Office with all proceeds going to the Kemp Hospice and local Rotary charities.
