This past weekend was the first opportunity for this year’s 2nd Vice District Governors to meet each other. This was at a two-day training event organised by the Multiple District at the St John’s Hotel in Solihull. There are 13 districts in MD 105 but two of them, 105A and 105NE do not yet have 2nd VDGs.

  • Pauric from 105I
  • Me and Christine from 105M

An overview of the geographic location of the districts within the British Isles and Ireland can be found on the MD website
