Kenilworth Rotary has elected its new president at its recent AGM.

Businessman John Boothroyd was elected for the next year, replacing John Kelley in the role.

Both men spoke with pride of the successful year enjoyed by the club, and of the possibility of even more success ahead as the club continues to support local and global projects.

Over the last year, Rotary joined forces with Kenilworth Round Table and Kenilworth Lions to provide £5,000 in funding to the Kenilworth Centre.

At the time, John Boothroyd said: “We’ve worked closely with the Kenilworth Centre’s trustees over the past few months, and are confident they’re on the right road to financial sustainability.”

Rotary also provided a defibrillator for Kenilworth Wardens Cricket Club, helped to fund a new trailer for 4th Kenilworth Scouts, and provided holidays in Mablethorpe for deprived children.

Additionally, Indian Ark restaurant, Band Hatton Button Solicitors and the Holiday Inn all joined Rotary as corporate members in the last year.
