Several Rotarians enjoyed an evening at the theatre to see Jeeves and Wooster, preceded by an alternative performance at Cote Brasserie, albeit at half price. There is no pleasing some!

After some Club business and updates on the forthcoming Halloween Walk, Circus Bezerkus and Rota Kids activities, we were presented with an interesting talk by Peter Stride on a career in the Metropolitan police force with the usual anecdotes.
