We haven’t had our regular weekly club meetings for over a year, we have been Using Zoom meetings as many have, through out the Covid-19 Pandemic.
We frequently look at ways to generate funds which we donate to various causes.
Our former President Colin Every is hopeful of running his Annual Golf Event which previously took place at Felixstowe. It was a super venue and those who attended were most complimentary both about the golf course and the organisation that went into arranging the day. Typically £1000 is raised for good causes—golf is probably the most likely sport you could hold a minor tournament, in the summer. Its all down to Covid-19 status
A Wine Tasting & Call My Bluff Evening is scheduled at The Anchor Little Downham. (Late Summer)
Looking forward we plan to hold another Quiz Evening – this time on Friday 22nd October. For those of you who have been before it will be similar to the previous Quiz which includes a fish and chip supper. This is a golden opportunity to test those brain cells and this year we have decided to make the questions slightly easier (largely to help the Quiz Master who regularly has trouble pronouncing the long words and reading maps)
Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland is the association of Rotary clubs within England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. We have over 1,800 clubs consisting of more than 50,000 men and women from all walks of life.
Our clubs are based in local communities where members meet on a regular basis to enjoy friendship, networking and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others. Clubs utilise the skills, expertise and dedication of their members to help improve the lives of people in communities both at home and abroad.
We are community champions who stand up for our communities both locally and overseas. We support those who need help, we strive to improve lives and we bring about positive change in our neighbourhoods. Every event, initiative or project that we run – whether it is local, national, international or online – is rooted in the notion of community. This is because we believe that society works better when communities work together
Local— Our clubs carry out a huge range of activities and projects at home aimed at improving and building community spirit. Many charities are appreciative of their local Rotary club for the money they receive through initiatives such as sponsored bike rides, Christmas collections and swimathons. A huge amount of hands on work is also carried out by members, such as organising and supervising days out for disadvantaged children, volunteering at local residential homes, and working with schools to run competitions. The list of local projects and initiatives is endless. Each Rotary club individually tailors the projects they get involved in to their community’s specific needs.
Why not visit our Facebook Page – you’ll see plenty of pictures of what we get up to and it may even inspire you to consider joining the club – new members are always welcome.
