Tamworth Rotary Club was formed on Tuesday, 11th April, 1932 – 85 years ago this year and celebrated with a cake at our dinner meeting last week; on the day which made it a significant milestone in the life of the Club.
I have thanked J & L Restaurant on behalf of the club for their excellent service that they were able to provide us with a birthday cake at very short notice.
