Well done Hazel
During my short tenure as District Governor Nominee I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from DG Hazel and she has been a great support to me. Hazel has been a great credit to Rotary in general and especially District 1040 and a great support to me.
On top of the work normally expected of a District Governor with 79 clubs throughout the Yorkshire area, she has overseen District 1040 enlargement to 103 clubs to start on 1st July 2016. Then there were ‘the floods’ which so badly affected large areas of Yorkshire. I know that Hazel has been full of praise for every Rotary Club in the District and beyond, for their considerable efforts in this regard. Perhaps now is the opportunity to thank Hazel for her tremendous organisational skills in making sure that District 1040 was as effective and efficient as possible.
There will be many more women District Governors in District 1040, but there will only be one ‘first’ lady.
Last, but not least, congratulations Hazel on being awarded an MBE in your year of office.
