A NEW president has taken over at Bognor Hotham Rotary Club.

Vanessa Mills has succeeded Peter Elliott during an enjoyable garden party at his house.

Vanessa is a well-known Bognor Regis resident. She is a former town mayor and a local historian, who wrote weekly articles for the Bognor Regis Observer about the past.

She told the club’s members she wanted to emphasise ‘fun while fundraising’ as her theme. Her president’s charity will be Home-start Arun.

In his retiring speech, Peter announced the club was donating £2,000 to St John Ambulance as a result of activities for his charity during the past year.

The club is the youngest of the town’s two Rotary clubs and holds the annual 10k road race.
