Thank you

I am writing to express my thanks, via the Worthing Herald, to the organiser’s of this year’s event for their kind invitation to me to attend this event on June 30, and represent the Rotary Club of Worthing Steyne to present our respects and support for our armed services, especially in our part of West Sussex.

As my final attendance as club president before I step aside for the next year’s club president, I am pleased to have attended and want to say how impressive the event, its ceremony and its support was.

Other club members are in northern France this weekend at a similar ceremony to mark our fallen there during the First World War. We are pleased to be able to join these ceremonies.

My best wishes to the local armed services and related organisations and I hope Rotary can continue to work with you on future events.
