More members of all ages is the target for new Spalding Rotary Club president Richard Thacker after taking over the chain of office.

Richard succeeds outgoing president Andy Prior after a handover ceremony at Welland Yacht Club where Rotarians discovered that the two men became members at the same time.
“I’m very proud of the club because it has a 77-year history in Spalding and it’s one of the oldest clubs in the country,” Richard said.
“To become president is a very nice thing and my ambition is to show people that the club is not just for those in business but everyone who wants to put something back into society.”
