Having held a successful full council meeting, the club held a full video club meeting - and the president Trevor Reynolds inducted two new members, Tim Penn and Rae Woods to the club. Both members responded and said a few words about themselves.

Tim Penn is a retired solicitor who has lived in Saffron Walden for many years but worked in Royston and was previously a member and president of the Rotary Club of Royston.

Rae Woods was the chief executive of an office and accommodation furniture company before retirement.

After the meeting president Trevor said: “It is great to be able to continue to meet and carry on some of our business during these difficult times using modern technology.

“I wonder of this is a Rotary first – the online induction of not just one member but two at the same meeting?”
