Jerry Hobbs was master of ceremonies for a historic induction of three new members to the Club. Julie Hickman was recruited by Mel Eves, was among other roles a former Head of Homeless Services for Sandwell and is now Project Manager for the conversion of the former Carillion building on the ring road. Sylvia Morgan introduced David Hill MBE who was in Steel and also fully engaged in the T.A. with the rank of Colonel. He was awarded his MBE in connection with his work for the Armed Forces Charity SSAFA. Kewal’s old friend and fellow GP Sudhir Handa came from Kenya when he was 16, studied medicine at Edinburgh and has special interests in ENT and medical politics. DG Brian Reilly said a few words of greetings including the encouragement to ‘have fun and do good’. Jerry in his emerging role of ‘general factotum and jack of all trades’ promised more members and change to come. Watch this space!
