Brian Tuck has been appointed the new president of the Warkworth chapter of Rotary International.
Mr Tuck was formerly governor of Rotary District 9910, which includes West Auckland, Northland, Vanuatu and New Caledonia.
Programmes that Warkworth Rotary intends to launch this year include building picnic benches for schools and developing vegetable gardens for students at Matakana School and Snells Beach School.
Meanwhile, Warkworth Lions has named David Scott as its new president, replacing Lynn Jones.
This year, Warkworth Lions joined forces with the Mahurangi Caremongers group that assisted the vulnerable and elderly during the Covid-19 lockdown. In addition, the Lions helped raise $22,400 for the Australian bushfire appeal.
Warkworth Lions Club will again be running its popular monthly quiz nights at Bowls Warkworth, starting this Wednesday, July 15, from 6.30pm.
Last month, the Wellsford Lions handed over a $10,000 cheque to Northland Rescue Helicopter from funds raised at their Roaring Truck Show.
