ON Wednesday, April 25, the two Rotary clubs in Ely welcomed five Turkish visitors to the city.

The group, all young business people, were in East Anglia as part of the Rotary Group Study Exchange scheme as guests of Rotary District 1080, and were sponsored by local clubs in Turkey. The group is from varied backgrounds - tourism, counselling, local airlines, an assistant university professor, and an employee of General Motors Turkey - and are here to see and experience social and business life in the UK. The party enjoyed a guided tour of the city in the company of the Mayor, and attended meetings of both Rotary clubs in Ely to give presentations on their lives in Turkey. At the evening club they were greeted by club members John Ison, and Avril Hayter-Smith.
