John Hirst

Hello & thank you for looking at our website. My name is John Hirst & I am the President of our club for the Rotary year starting in July 2021.  

The world has changed so much in the last 18 month & throughout the world everyone will be beginning the process of rebuilding. Covid -19 has had a devastating impact, in some places much worse than others. there is so much to do to recover & that work has started.

This will undoubtedly be one of our biggest Rotary challenges in the next year & we will be working together with all our members & partners with a view to trying to improve the current situation, not only in Bristol but across the world. I welcome the opportunity to discuss our plans for the future, not only with members of Rotary but also with people who are interested in the work that we do. Please do make contact with me if you would like to discuss our plans. We are always looking our for new members of our Rotary Club - now is a really good time for you to consider joining the Rotary family & being part of a world wide Rotary team who are all united in the aim of helping others.

The Rotary Club of Bristol is now 104 years old and we have achieved so much. During my year as President I am hoping that we can not only begin to recover from Covid-19, but also make some really positive steps forward to help people who are in need. We do need more members & I do look forward to having the opportunity to discuss our plans with all potential new members. I have been a member of the Rotary Club in Bristol for almost 20 years & this is the second time that I have been given the privilege of being the President. My aim over the next 12 months is to begin the recovery from Covid & to focus our efforts on helping those who are in need & really making a positive difference during these very difficult times.

I look forward to working with everyone. Your support is vital & will be very much appreciated.You can contact me via the contact page of this website. I look forward to hearing from you!
