New Paul Harris Fellow

10/06/2008

 

Within Great Britain and Ireland the awarding of a Paul Harris Fellow Award is a great honour, as these are normally only awarded in recognition of significant service to the community.

Club President Bill Tillotson had the honour of awarding a Paul Harris Fellow Award to David Parkin, the former manager of Waitrose in West Ealing, a position that he had held for some 20 years prior to his retirement in April this year.

David has not only been a great friend to Rotary, but to many other organisations across the Borough including Ealing Mencap and Meadow House Hospice.

In recognition of the high regard in which David was held, we were joined by a number of his friends to celebrate the award.

We wish David, and his wife Maureen a long and happy retirement.
