Devas Club celebrate John Clarke’s retirement after 10 years of service

The Trustees were hosted at University College by the Master (head) Sir Ivor Crewe, himself a trustee, for a dinner to mark the retirement of John Clarke from the Devas Board last year after 10 years of service, latterly as the Chief Operating Officer. In his remarks thanking John for his many contributions to the Club, Dr Paul Flather (now the longest serving trustee with 30 years service), paid tribute to the work of all fellow trustees but especially to John for his knack of bringing in new faces and new partners to the Club. This outreach work has greatly benefitted the Club both in terms of developing fresh local links, and of producing new users of the Club’s excellent facilities.
