Ro­tary Leeds White Rose will be host­ing a break­fast meet­ing fea­tur­ing a talk from John Wat­son, the brother of the late Vic­tor Wat­son – chair­man of the board game man­u­fac­turer Wadding­tons. Mr Wat­son, who served as Skip­ton MP, is set to talk about his life in busi­ness and par­lia­ment.

Vic­tor Wat­son fought off two takeover at­tempts for Wadding­tons by print mogul Robert Maxwell.

Craig Burton, a long-time friend and fel­low Ro­tar­ian, said: “John saw first hand how a busi­ness was built and then al­most bro­ken and can share some real rare in­sights of the kind usu­ally kept out of the pub­lic eye.” The break­fast will take place at the Park Plaza on De­cem­ber 12 at 7am.
