Members of Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club have welcomed Rotarian Ian Brodie as their new president.

The first changeover of the president of Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club, saw founder president Andre Finney hand over the chain of office to the club’s new chief officer, Ian Brodie.

At the ceremony, the outgoing president gave a resume of some of the wonderful achievements that had been accomplished in the first year of the club.

These successes include the building of the kitchen for the local Foodbank, changing the signage at the Jubilee Centre and planting more than 10,000 flower bulbs to brighten up Grantham.

There was also work to assist the Mini Olympics, the collection of donations for the victims of flooding, supporting homeless charity Passage and the annual RotarySwimarathon, along with many other projects.

In its first year more than £6,000 has been raised for charity and many local projects have been supported.

In his new role, Mr Brodie will be supported by vice-president Lez Jones.

Mr Jones said: “We hope to attain and surpass all that has been achieved in the first year of the club.

“We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead.”

Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club consists of 24 members, an equal split of men and women, from all walks of life.

The Sunrise Club meets at 7am for breakfast (hence the name) every other week, and aims to be innovative and flexible.
