Recognising Long Service

Three long standing members of Swanage & Purbeck Rotary have been recognised for their service.

Doug Quayle has completed 25 years service to Rotary, David Pike more than 35 years and Mick Beck over 40 years.

All three were awarded long service certificates by Club President Dai Hounsell at our recent speaker meeting at Swanage Sailing Club and at home.

David will be familiar to many as the ‘techie’ often seen clambering around stage setups for events such as the Summer FĂȘte and Christmas Market, as well as helping Santa with his sleigh.

Mick has been a stalwart of the December programme, often acting as the sorting office for the Christmas Mail as well as being involved in many roles within the club over the years including auditor and committee chair and member of many of the club’s committees.

Doug has had input into many areas of the club over the years, in particular the Christmas market.

Their recognition is well deserved and they are an inspiration to us all, but we hope they’re not finished yet as their wealth of experience will continue to be invaluable to the club as we go forward.
