New President for Tavistock Rotary Club
Catherine Bailey, the 70th president of Tavistock Rotary Club, has handed over to new club president, Graham Parker, at the end of one of the most successful years in the club’s history.
At a garden party hosted by Rotarian David Tout, 50 guests heard of the club’s substantial achievements over the past 12 months. Under the guidance of Catherine, who was also named Plymouth Law Society’s Young Lawyer of the Year 2016, the club finalised the supply of fresh water from 16 wells in Uganda, raised money to supply three chemotherapy pumps for Derriford Hospital, funded the training of dozens of young South Africans and helped Santa to visit thousands of people in Tavistock over Christmas.
“Catherine is someone who brings people together,” said newly appointed president Graham Parker. “We are now working closely with Tavistock Lions, the Town Council, and Local Matters on the creation of the Community Sensory Garden. Under Catherine’s guidance, we’ve taken responsibility for the Christmas day lunch at the URC, assisted with CHICKS’ Santa Run, helped organise the parking at Widecombe Fair, organised Youth Speaks, Young Photographer … the list is far too long. The simple fact is that Catherine is going to be a really hard act to follow.”
Catherine is a partner of GA Solicitors and works within the wills, trust & probate department. She specialises in Lasting Powers of Attorney, the administration of taxable and non-taxable estates, the writing of wills and trust administration.
