We have a new President of Farnborough Rotary Club – Michael Smailes.

Mike joined the club in 2011 and has taken over the reins of presidency from Diane Bedford who has held the pst for the last 12 months. This is a fixed term for all presidents, locally, nationally and internationally.

Since joining Rotary in 2011, Mike has been chairman of many committees within the club and is a most enthusiastic member. He is a keen gardener, keeps his own chickens and has represented the club in many inter club competitions as a sportsman, playing golf, tennis, table tennis, pool and many others.

He is married to Anne and if ever you get an opportunity to visit his home, you will be assured of not only a very warm welcome but also the opportunity to try Anne’s cake. (you can take it from me, they are delicious). (SU).
