Martin Berry was received at a formal dinner at the University of Cambridge's Madingley Hall.

The festivities at the 16th-century venue also celebrated the outgoing Rotary president, David Blundell.

Instead of the usual black tie, three of the club's members decided that they would page homage to Mr Berry's pride in Rotary's diverse work and membership through attending in a different type of formal attire.
