About us


A warm welcome to non-Rotarians and Rotarians alike. It is a great honour to be invited to be your President for the next year. 

I would like to thank Past President Mary for an enjoyable and interesting year. 
I am looking forward to working with President Elect Sandy, President Nominee David and all the Committee Chairman. I hope we will continue the support our local Charities, Life Education, Rosemere and Macmillan. My Charity for the year is The British Heart Foundation, as you may know I had a heart problem in 2015.  They do a wonderful job and need lots of support. 
I am sure once again we will support local and international collections and events where needed, especially Purple4Poliowhere eradication of polio across the world is so close. 
I hope we can carry on being active in the community supporting events such as Stroke Awareness Day, the Town Bonfire, Ribble Valley Bike Ride and the Food Festival. 
The social side of Rotary is also important and it’s a good chance to meet other Rotarians in the Area when we play Crown Green Bowls, the Grey Games, Snooker, Darts, Carpet Bowls, Dominoes and Putting. I am sure we will with the help of all our Club Members have an active and successful year.

 If you are interested in finding out more about Rotary in the Ribble Valley, please get in touch. New members are always welcome or, just come along and see if Rotary is for you.

Yours in Rotary
