WHAT DO WE DO
Meanwhile, you may be wondering...What exactly do we do at the Rotary Club of Sowerby Bridge?
We organise events such as a Classic Bike Show, we marshall at local community events such as the Rushbearing Festival and the Navigation Walk, we raise funds to contribute to the global eradication of polio programme, we support the local Rotakids group in Luddenden, as well as help Ryburn Valley High with their Falcoln project.
There are plenty of opportunities to find out more. Either telephone or e-mail our Membership Contact - Anne Sutcliffe (see the membership pages in "What we do") or the Secretary, Jeffrey Fisher or come to one of our meetings or talk to us at one of the events we either organise or support.
By meeting the members in our club who are responsible for international projects, community and youth projects, you will be surprised how effective a small but enthusiastic group of people can be.
We have built on the bumper years of 2014 to 2015, and following on from our corporate member of Tesco Sowerby Bridge, David Fawcett of Happy Days Cycles joins us. Here he is pictured with President Hazel.
