President Beverley's Message

Rotary Connects The World

This year it will be our challenge to strengthen the many ways Rotary connects the world.

1.2 million members worldwide come together to create positive,lasting change in our communities.Many people see our rotary emblem but don’t actually know who or what our organisation does. We have a unique position of being rooted within our own communities, but with a global outlook. We volunteer our time and talents to tackle challenges at home and abroad in our cause areas:

· Promoting Peace

· Fighting Disease

· Providing Clean Water

· Supporting Education

· Saving Mothers and Children

· Growing Local Economies

We are People of Action, ready to turn our ideas and vision into lasting change, by creating opportunities, supporting those who need it most and transforming their lives.

In my year as president I wish to support school in a bag and sand dams. School in a bag Is a simple solution created to help poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. Each SchoolBag is filled with stationery and learning resources that will enable a child to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves and above all learn whilst Sand dams are a simple, low-cost and lowmaintenance, replicable rainwater harvesting technology. They provide a clean, local water supply for domestic and farming use and are suited to semi-arid areas of the world. I would like to engage local schools and communities in these projects.

I hope that we can have fun along the way too with a few social events whilst enjoying the fellowship that rotary offers.

It is a privilege to be your president this year and would like to see our club flourish for years to come.
