Ray Davies with new SDLA president Keith Simm


People from the Red Rose county who have settled in Sidmouth have their 33rd new leader after a handover last week.

Keith Simm took over from Ray Davies as president of the Sidmouth and District Lancastrian Association in a ceremony at Deer Park Country House.

Retired nuclear engineer Keith feels well qualified for his new position, having not only been the president of a rotary club branch, but also of the Institution of Royal Engineers.

The association is open to new members and welcomes anyone with a connection to Lancashire.

To join, call secretary Carole Turner on 01395 579545.
