KINVER Rotary Club has welcomed five new members in the past three months.

The latest to be inducted was Andy Sheppard, whose arrival has swelled Kinver's ranks to 48, one of the highest in the Rotary district, which stretches from Tamworth to Southam, Stourport and Rugby.

Incoming President, Roger Stephenson said: "Our club is obviously proving attractive to those seeking to serve the local community, while raising funds for deserving causes and enjoying fine fellowship."
