He said: “The core ethos of rotary is encapsulated in its motto, ‘service above self’.

“While serving and supporting the community, both locally and through our international contacts, may appear to be on hold at present, as a result of COVID-19, I can assure you that our club members are working behind the scenes to ensure that during my year we will be able to deliver on our remit.”

After a career including spells in the oil industry and running his own business, John was appointed chief executive of the Society of Maritime Industries.

This is not his first rotary presidency. He joined Darlington Rotary Club in the 1970s and was president in 1989-90. He has been a member of Harpenden Village Rotary Club since 2001.
