New president unveiled

The Rotary Club of Matlock unveiled its new president this week.

Eric McCarrison was installed as the club’s new president by retiring president Bill Darley, on Monday, July 4, at the Temple Hotel, Matlock Bath.

Eric said he would continue to promote the club’s good works in the community.

He said: “The club has a full programme of social and fund raising events that should be fun for the club members as well as raising money for the many worthy causes that are brought to the clubs attention throughout the year.”

There are two new events scheduled for this year, a vintage car rally to be held at Ashover at the end of July and a fund raising event to be held, courtesy of Lord Edward Manners at Haddon Hall in late August.

Last year the club raised almost £15,000 for good causes.
