Rotary Club of Thame & District welcomes new president

It’s all change at the top as a local councillor and retired accountant from Great Milton who dedicates his spare time to volunteering and fundraising in the local community takes up the reins as president of his local Thame & District Rotary club.

Peter Allen was welcomed as the new president of Rotary Club of Thame & District on June 26th at Thame’s Spread Eagle during the handover dinner meeting.

Peter has been a Rotarian for over 20 years and his commitment to the club has earned the respect of fellow members who were only too pleased to vote him in as their new president for the forthcoming year.

Peter said: “I am delighted to become the new president of our wonderful club. It’s going to be a very exciting year. We’re hoping to try out some new things and are looking for inspired and enthusiastic men and women to join our club. We have a lot of fun and really enjoy ourselves, on top of all the fundraising and other community work we do, and would love to hear from anyone interested in joining us and making a real difference to their community.

“This year, we are planning to expand our involvement with the younger generation and I am looking forward to meeting and working with local groups and really getting people involved with Rotary. There is so much to do and enjoy.”

Peter has now retired from the City, is a parish councillor and involves himself in supporting charities for ex-servicemen.  He is married with two children and four grandchildren.
