Rotary fellowship at its best with a step back in time

Devizes Rotary President Alan Martin and his wife Nita, enjoyed meeting up with his Past District Governor Ken Broad. Ken was Governor of Rotary District 1100,  when Alan was the President of the Rotary Club of Marlborough in 1988/89. The picture shows Past District Governor Ken, who is soon to celebrate his 100th birthday, with Alan’s wife Nita.

Ken and his wife Nancy have recently moved to a retirement village in Sandford near Western Super Mare.

For some ten years following his term of office, PDG Ken and Nancy hosted an annual reunion for Ken’s fifty-three past Presidents. Since then Alan and Nita, together with three other of Ken’s past Presidents and their wives, have enjoyed meeting with Ken and Nancy several times a year, for a lunchtime get-together.

Devotees of cricket may recognise in Ken’s surname, an association with members of the England Cricket team.  Not only are he and Nancy the proud parents of son Chris Broad but grandparents of Stuart Broad – each a past and present member of the England squad!
