Lifetime Membership for David Carwardine

At the lunch on Tuesday 12 November David Carwardine was presented with a framed certificate to mark his appointment as a Life Member of the club. After hearing of his business career from graduate trainee at Vauxhall Motors to main board director at Lansing Bagnell and then as Director of Regional Operations for BIM (British Institute of Management), David then spoke of his 22 years as a member of the Probus Club of Basingstoke. He served as President in 1996/97 introducing several changes to the way the committee was organised and brought in the summer ladies’ pub lunch which continues today.

David and his wife Betty will be leaving Basingstoke early in 2014 to be closer to their family in Wiltshire and Bristol and we offer them our good wishes.
