Last weekend Banbury Rotary played their part in celebrating the 100th anniversary of the opening of the town’s first real park: the People’s Park.
The town council had organised a well balanced mixture of celebrations of the past whilst providing plenty activities (several free of charge) for children and adults of the present.
As usual Rotarians lived up to their reputation as ‘people of action’ by assisting with the event
Surinder Dhesi (current president of Banbury Rotary and Town Mayor Elect for 2020/21 ) noted that that the Park holds happy memories for generations of Banbury families.
Mark Recchia (Town Clerk and retiring Honorary Secretary of the Rotary Club of Banbury) was also present helping ensure things went smoothly.
Sir Tony Baldry attended in his role as High Steward of Banbury.
