Two of Plimmerton Rotary’s newest members introduced themselves to the Club and we heard two very different inaugural speeches before the members adjourned to their committees on Tuesday 17 March.
Alistair Taylor told about a career which took him to Holland and England and concluded with a yacht race through heavy seas, and Philip Mottram who transformed an Architecural background into a successful teaching career.

The members who have completed their profiles are to be congratulated (and thanked).
