His aims include assisting with Rotary International's goal of polio eradication throughout the world and, closer to home, he is keen to involve local schools with the activities that Rotary has to offer.

Peter thanked last year's president Gerry Jones for "a momentous year," including the attraction of new members and confirmed his intention to continue the drive for new members, in particular young professional men and women who feel that they could give the time and effort to support the Rotary aims.
