ROTARY clubs in Times Territory have elected new presidents for the coming 12 months.
* In Hatfield, outgoing Robert Addleman handed over to the new president, John Hopley.
One of Mr Hopley's first tasks was to present a cheque for �350 to Barry Clark of the Breaks Manor youth centre, pictured top left, to support its work with young people in Hatfield.
Mr Clark said: "We're very grateful to the Rotary Club for thinking of us. The money will be going towards out motorcycling project, which provides the opportunity for young people to ride motorbikes skilfully and safely."
