Friday 1st July 2016 is the first day of the new Rotary New Year and I became ‘District Governor Elect’ for District 1040. Turning the calendar from June to July seemed like a simple enough thing to do but for some reason a twinge of apprehension swept through me!

On Sunday 3rd July the informal formalities of District Handover took place at The Bridge Hotel and Spa in Wetherby (www.thebridgewetherby.co.uk). DG Hazel handed the chain of office to incoming District Governor Phil Poole, I became DG Elect and Nigel Arthurs was installed as District Governor Nominee.
