President's Message 2018/19
Welcome to the website of Oswestry Borderland Rotary Club.
President Geoff writes…
" I remember feeling flattered when I was acepted as a member of Borderland Rotary Club 6 years ago. That emotion returned recently when I was invited to become President Elect and then President, 2018/19.
Being entrusted with the welfare of this well established and successful Club, I am confident that all the support I may need is available from our many experienced and talented club members.
Club is already in very good order so a light touch on the tiller is enough, allowing for a peeiod of stabilisation and reinforcement of the bond of fellowship and mutual support which membership of this club offers.
I am told by past presidents that the year will appear to pass in a flash, so I look forward to the experience and hope to have an enjoyable year."
Borderland Rotary ...
Borderland Rotary was founded in 1990 to satisfy a need for an evening Club in the Oswestry area. and we meet at Sweeney Hall Hotel at Morda on a Wednesday evening at 19.30 for 19.45.
Our members are drawn both from the town of Oswestry and the surrounding areas of Shropshire and Montgomeryshire.
We are a dual gender club of close to 40 members and actively support the inclusion of lady Rotarians. We have no corresponding Inner Wheel Club although partners have formed themselves into an ad-hoc group known as the 'Inner Tube' which arranges its own social programme.
Guest speakers are invited to most of our meetings although the first Wednesday in each month is reserved to discuss the business affairs of the Club.
There is a strong sporting bias with members participating in golf, cycling, football, rugby, water polo and wheelchair basketball together with the odd excursions into clay pigeon shooting , bowls and archery.
