Liz Parker and Tina Morley have taken up the challenge of getting activities moving again. They have an ambitious programme of change, community service, fundraising and social events planned.

The previous president, David Crossland, has held the club together through a very difficult time and enabled it still to work for the community and raise funds despite the restrictions.

A spokesman said: “New, younger people are needed to carry on the work and legacy of Rotary in the Pocklington area. They will be able to form their own group and run it with their own ideas.

“Once established, it is hoped that the group will take over as the main Rotary presence in the Pocklington area.
