Hello! Let me introduce you to Rotary and, in particular, the Rotary Club of Bristol. There couldn't be a better time! Ours was the very first Rotary club in the South West, back in 1917 and gave rise to many other clubs throughout the region.
As President of the Rotary Club of Bristol for the year commencing July 2020, I would like to welcome you. The theme chosen by Rotary International this year is 'Rotary Opens Opportunities’. Our members, men and women come from a wide rage of backgrounds and each bring to Rotary the skills and experience that enables us to be effective in supporting good causes locally and abroad.
In our own city we will continue to support vulnerable people in partnership with other organisations. On an international level we are exploring some new projects in Africa. We will continue to maintain contact with our friends in our twinned Rotary Clubs in Bordeaux, Hannover, Porto & Stockholm.
Whilst we are no longer meeting at our usual venue due to the restrictions, for the foreseeable future we are continuing to meet virtually on-line to discuss our plans and activities.
Visiting Rotarians and anyone interested in finding our more about Rotary membership will always be welcome.
