At our weekly meeting on 5th June, 29 members and guests assembled in the Waterloo Suite at Lockwood Park to hear our guest speaker, Professor Paul Rogers, Professor of Peace Studies at Bradford University.

    Paul spoke for 30 minutes and then answered questions from his audience. All aspects of War Against Terrorism and How to Avoid Future Wars were covered.

The vote of thanks was given by President Elect Rotarian Julian Holdroyd, and the audience responded with rapturous applause.
