Previous Rotary president Yvonne Holmes highlighted what the club had done throughout the 2017/2018 year and thanked her board for all their support and hard work.

She listed the grant projects and the Hippo Rollers project as the club’s most successful in empowering various communities.

New Rotary president Robin Bath was elected as president for the third time.

Bath said the club plans to purchase more Hippo Rollers to help other communities.

“The aim is to focus on strengthening the club and create awareness of our activities,” Bath said.

“We will concentrate on a youth programme and do more with the youth.”

Rhoda Toker stood in for past Rotary Anns president Gill Davey in her absence.
