A NEW chairman was warmly welcomed into office when Clitheroe Round Table held its AGM at The Calf’s Head, Worston.

Gordon Preston takes over the reins from outgoing chairman Rick Pallister, who wished him every success in his year in office.

Now in its 53rd year, Clitheroe Round Table is perhaps best known in the area for its members’ work raising money for local good causes, with December’s “Santa Runs” being probably the most widely recognised. Members of the club, however, are keen to promote it as being more than just about collecting money for charity; it is also about making new friends, having fun and trying something new.

Speaking after the AGM, new chairman Gordon Preston said he was excited to be taking on the role and hoped for an even better year building on the success of the his predecessor.

“I think it’s important to dispel any myths surrounding Round Table – it’s about having fun and giving something back to the community,” he said.
