   It is with great sadness we report the passing of our past president John Parkhouse, whose dedication to the club and whose leadership will be difficult to replace.


    John had been a member of Southampton West Rotary Club since 1975, he and  Chrissie have been a formidable team. Our thoughts are with Chrissie and family at this sad time.

A Memorial Service was held April 5th at Southampton Crematorium .
