ROYSTON Rotary Club has a new president.

David Izod, 66, has taken over the role from Neil Guttridge. He was welcomed in by the club at their community service awards night, held at the Cambridge Motel.

He said: "I am delighted to become the new President of our wonderful club. It's going to be a very exciting year.

"We're hoping to try out some new things, along with the usual major events and service that we provide to the town. We are looking for inspired and enthusiastic men and women to join our club.

"We have had a lots of fun and really enjoy ourselves, on top of all the fundraising that we do, and would love to hear from anyone interested in joining us and making a real difference to the community."
