Cheadle MP Mark Hunter was last week inducted as an honorary member of the Rotary Club of Bramhall and Woodford last Wednesday (22nd August) during their regular monthly dinner at the Ladybridge Park Residents Club in Cheadle Hulme.

Speaking afterwards Mark Hunter said: "I was delighted to be asked to join the Bramhall and Woodford Rotary Club as a honorary member and I consider it to be an honour to be invited to become part of the Rotary family. I am well aware of the very important work carried out by Rotary International in raising funds for all kinds of good causes and I am keen to help the local branch in their efforts as and when I can.

Gordon Jackson said: "We are very pleased to have Mark as a member, and although we appreciate he's a busy man it will be good to have our local MP involved in our activities."
