Fresh from a hugely-successful District 1070 Conference, District Governor John Dehnel paid a visit to the Rotary Club of Leicester Novus.

Accompanied by one of the teddy bears that all District Governors are using to promote the message that although Rotary’s 30-year campaign has reduced infections of polio from 387,000 a year to 26 so far in 2016, Rotarians must continue to make sure that polio is finally eradicated from the world.

John praised Novus members for the service they give to the community.
