John joins Weston Rotary Club to celebrate 100 years

Weston Rotary Club celebrated its centenary year by holding an exhibition in Weston Museum to showcase its work over the last century.

The town’s MP John Penrose attended the event along with other notable figures from Weston’s past and present.

Mr Penrose told the Mercury how important it is to preserve local history such as the Rotary club’s.

Mr Penrose said: “It shows just how powerful a good idea can be, to see Weston Rotary still going strong after a century of money-raising and good work.

“But it is not just an idea; it is the dedication and selfless hard work of a hundred years of local Rotary members contributing to good causes and helping our community keep ticking.

“Here’s to the next hundred, too.”
