BBC News presenter Huw Edwards joined Sudbury Rotary Club as guest speaker at its annual Charter Night dinner.

Huw entertained guests with amusing anecdotes of his life and work in the media, including the admission that he would never take part in Strictly Come Dancing due to pressures of work.

However he did speak about his role in the James Bond film Skyfall, which saw him make his big screen debut as a news presenter for 43 seconds.

He also spoke about Brexit and issues surrounding social media in news reporting.

Rotary president Tony Platt got to know Huw through their joint interest and involvement in the Welsh chapels in London and was able to persuade the journalist to join the Rotarians at the meal at the Secret Garden restaurant on Friday April 26 and which celebrated 69 years of Rotary in Sudbury.

Huw himself is a Rotarian and has also been awarded the major accolade in Rotary – a Paul Harris Fellowship.

Mr Platt said: “Huw ensured that the Charter Night was a very enjoyable and successful evening, and one which will be talked about and remembered for a long time.

“We were incredibly grateful to Huw for generously giving up time in a very busy schedule of work to visit us in Sudbury, and we will welcome him back at any time.”
