LONG-SERVING Hailsham Rotarian Roy Walter celebrated four decades with the organisation during the club’s annual Christmas Dinner.

Club president Simon Marden presented Mr Walter, the former proprietor of two Costcutter shops in Hailsham, with a cake bearing the Rotary symbol, to mark 40 years with the organisation.

Father Bill Haymaker, the Rector of St Paul’s Church in Bexhill delivered a Christmas message to club members and their guests during the event at the Boship Hotel in Hellingly.

Raffle proceeds of £100 were donated to Father Bill’s charity, Project New Life, which aims to aid abused and neglected children in Moldova and Romania.
