This was followed by a talk from Rotary International Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) president Peter King who spoke about his career in the Army and afterwards, as a barrister and judge dealing with immigration matters.

Ken Knock, secretary of Holbeach Rotary Club, said: “Our charter night was an opportunity to invite Rotarians from neighbouring clubs around the area to join us and celebrate our birthday.

“It was quite a coup for us to have Peter King as our speaker and the key part of the evening was when he talked about how he went from secondary school to getting a law degree and becoming a lawyer.

“Peter is now a senior judge dealing with immigration matters but he’s also an ordained minister in his spare time - a fascinating man with quite a story to tell.”
