The new Wansbeck Rotary president is betting on a good term in office.

Founder member Howard Chisholm, who is managing director of Chisholm Bookmakers, has taken over the chain of office just in time for the club’s 25th anniversary in October.

Outgoing president Stephen Ling helped to raise more than £10,000 for charity in his year in the role, including £6,400 to be shared between 18 youth groups in the Wansbeck area.

Rotary is a worldwide organisation that supports local, national and international causes.

The Wansbeck club meets at Newbiggin Golf Club every Monday, at 7.30pm, for friendship, fellowship and food.

New members welcome.
