Welcome to our
Reports on Activities as they happen, and planned Events
In accordance with Government Directives all our club meetings and public activities are suspended until further notice. We are maintaining contact with each other and our sister club - Inner Wheel. Whilst a high proportion of us are classified as high or very high risk from the virus and we are, therefore, confined to our homes for 3 months, if there is anything we could do, eg talk by telephone to anyone feeling lonely, do contact our Secretary by email (see heading) in the first instance.
As we are unable to meet for dinner etc, our individual Rotary accounts, fuelled by members' 'standing orders' to pay
for meals etc, are growing at a rapid rate. We are proposing that members may like
to give a small sum of cash from their individual accounts to a local food bank.
