Welcome to the Rotary Club of Sandbach Crosses
We meet on Tuesday evening at 7.30 at the recently refurbished "Wheatsheaf ", Hightown, Sandbach - our original home with plenty of room for all the club members to attend meetings and guests, potential new members and speakers to be invited.
We are a small, friendly, dual gender club. If you are interested in finding out more about what we do, or joining our club, then please complete the 'Contact Us' form at the top of the page.
Ex-President Arnold Laing and incoming President David Whitworth together with Founder President Ron Smith (centre).
Exercising the widely known Objects of Rotary, coupled with the very positive thinking of our members makes this another exciting year to be a member of the Rotary Club of Sandbach Crosses.
So as custodian of the role as President, what am I aiming for in the coming year?
We have a solid club bsis with fund-raising over Christmas with the successful Santa collectionand Christmas tree recycling, and other strong events such as the recent Liz Earle skincare event in Sandbach Town Hall. We've always prided ourselves on doing our own thing, but I feel club members would benefit from greater involvement with the wider Rotary. To enable this;
- Honorarium available to all members to susidise personal involvement with other Rotary clubs.
- Encourage involvement in at least one multi-club community project or event and a corresponding international project.
My chosen charities are two-fold:
- Alzheimer's Society, but focussed on making Sandbach a dementia friendly community.
- MyelomaUK, on the recommendation of one of our new members - Andrew Hinett.
We have the best communication facilities we've ever had, with David Walls manging the website, new press officer Jo Webb and Jean Billingsly looking after the club's new Facebook page. I hope this will raise Rotary's profile in Sandbach and promote and foster the club's activities in the local community, as well as encourage local community-minded people to join us.
We should have avaried and intersting speaker programme as most have been/will be chosen by individual members.
Let's all have an enjoyable year!
