Meet the Chairman 2022-2024 - Keith Butler

I joined Abingdon Round Table in 1990, having moved to Abingdon from Buckinghamshire three years previously. I had a great time in RT and was Chairman, although I really can’t remember when. I gravitated to 41 Club in about 2003 and was Chairman in 2009-2010.

I retired in 2021 after 22 years as Finance Director of a large motor retail group, although I still look after some property interests. I’ve since become a Trustee of Cogges Farm in Witney, and am working with the Nasio Trust, which helps underprivileged and orphaned children in Kenya. I am also Trustee and Secretary of the Friends of Abingdon Civic Society, which endeavours enhance the attractiveness of Abingdon as a place to live and work and maintain its heritage.

As regards leisure pursuits, I do some share trading and enjoy gardening, walking and spending more time with our granddaughter.

After two years of lockdowns, I am looking forward to organising a programme of monthly meetings both at our usual venue and at other places, doing some different things and continuing to enjoy the benefits of 41 Club fellowship.
