Pic L to R: Chris Northen (President TRC) welcomes David Chaplin

David Chaplin has been a member of Hitchin Rotary Club for forty years.

Originally an academic in Further and higher Education, David established a firm of Chartered Secretaries in the mid-nineties. The firm flourished, providing services to over 20 institutions spread over a wide area of the UK from North Wales to the South coast and East Anglia as well as to the British overseas territories of St Helena and Tristan de Cunha

He retired at the age of 75, and his son and daughter in law persuaded him and wife Diane to consider moving closer to them (they have a converted Farmhouse at Hawkhurst).

David and Diane loved Tenterden from the moment they first saw it in June and moved into a new house at Threefields three days before Christmas.
