PRESTATYN Rotarians welcomed a new club President during their weekly meeting at the Beaches Hotel.

The new President for 2022-23 is Rotarian Paul Burnet, a businessman who runs the local Now-To-Bed stores with his wife Sue and family.

Outgoing President, Rotarian Jean Smith, had successfully steered the club through the second half of the Covid lockdown, and said: “I would like to thank everyone who helped through a difficult year which I think we managed quite gracefully.

“I wish President Paul all the best for the coming year.”

He added: “It’s great to see so many Rotarians here this evening.

“I will do my best to keep Prestatyn Rotary Club successful and I look forward to working with you all in my year of office.”

Paul presented a bouquet of flowers to past-President Jean and thanked her for all that she had achieved in her year.
