Rotary’s new face becomes president
9:00am Tuesday 13th August 2013 in News
TOP TEAM: Former Malvern Rotary president Paul Harris presented Keith Clingan and Harry Tanner with fellowship award.
A NEWman has proudly taken up the position as president of Malvern Rotary Club.
Mick Wasley is “delighted and honoured” to have taken over at the helm from previous president Paul Harris.
Mr Wasley, aged 71, grew up in north Worcestershire and spent 14 years as a loadmaster in the Royal Air Force, flying all over the world on Hastings, Argosy and Hercules aircraft.
Later he became a chartered waste manager, working on contracts all over Europe and the Far East.
Now retired and living in Upton-upon-Severn, he is looking forward to leading the club through the next 12 months.
He celebrated his appointment by welcoming 60 guests to a barbecue at the Beauchamp Community, Newland, commenting that it was all done to “soften the membership for a busy year ahead”.
Mr Wasley has chosen Midlands Air Ambulance as his nominated charity and the club will continue to support the Gazette-backed Ease The Pain appeal to buy a new scanner for Malvern Community Hospital.
Mr Wasley, who sings bass with local choir Hanley Voices, is also hoping to attract new members.
“If you are the kind of person who wants to make a difference by putting something back into the community, work as a member of a friendly, downto- earth, committed team and generally help others while having a full and enjoyable social life, then Rotary is for you,” he said.
Anyone interested in joining can call 01684 565812.
