As part of its 70th Anniversary celebrations, the Rotary Club of Redditch entertained over 70 members, past members and guests to a special lunch on Monday, 27th November, at the Abbey Hotel, the club's usual lunch venue.

Organised by Rotarian Mike Workman with support from fellow Rotarians, the lunch was attended by the Mayor of Redditch, Councillor Jenny Wheeler, accompanied by husband Steve Wheeler, together with representatives of other Rotary clubs, as well as other guests from the local community. Councillor Wheeler disclosed her deep knowledge of and interest in Rotary, dating back to her time as a Rotary exchange student in the US.

District Governor Elect, Gary Dancer attended on behalf of the District Governor, and led the highlight of the event, the presentation of a long service award to Rotarian Mike Ostroumoff in recognition of his 45 years of continuous membership.

The lunch was rounded off by the cutting of a huge birthday cake by Gary Dancer and Malcolm Jones, President of the Rotary Club of Redditch.
