A new man has taken the reins at Thame Rotary Club.
Bob Livings, from Towersey, has adopted his new role as president, taking over from Mo Westcott.
Mr Livings has been a Rotarian for more than four years and his commitment to the club has earned him the respect of fellow members who were only too pleased to vote him in as their new president for the forthcoming year, according to members at of the Rotary.
His first act as president is to encourage people to take part in the club’s annual swimathon.
Mr Livings said: “I am delighted to become the new president of our wonderful club. It’s going to be a very exciting year.
“Our first edition of the Rotary Swimathon will take place at the Thame Leisure Centre on October 7.
“As 2012 is an Olympic year, we want to encourage more people to start a sporting activity or do a bit more exercise.
“We are looking for teams of six people of all ages who are able to swim to raise funds for the mayor of Thame’s charities (Sharing Life Trust and SERV), Thame and District Day Centre, Air Ambulance, Hearing Dogs and other local causes.
“We have a lot of fun and really enjoy ourselves, on top of all the fundraising we do, and would love to hear from anyone interested – either women or men – in joining us.”
