As the 100th president, Mike says that the year should be marked with an emphasis on local community events.

For his first official duty, Mike presented a cheque for £250 to the mayor of Gosport, Cllr Diane Furlong, which will go to her chosen charities for the year.

The new president has been given the well-wishes of the mayor, district assistant governor John Lovell and the president of Portsmouth and Southsea club, John Bishop.
