District Governor visits WGC Rotary 

Delighted to welcome DG Mary Whitehead to our Club Council and business meeting today. Led by President, John Walton, we reviewed our current operations in fundraising, community activities and fellowship.
We were flattered to be told that we're up there with many of the most active Rotary Clubs within District 1260 (perhaps further up than we had thought ourselves!)
Our membership drive continues with efforts to engage with Welwyn Hatfield and Hertfordshire Chambers of Commerce as well as WGC's Business Improvement District team - taking us back to Rotary's roots as a charity-directed,  community-based networking organization where men and women from business and the community come together to put something back!


Charity Quiz Night at St Francis Church Hall, Parkway,  Welwyn Garden City.

6.30 for 7.00pm start.   Tables of 6, 7, or 8.  (+ An "Open Table" for Singles/Couples to join).

Fellowshiip across the Channel - 

WGC Rotary goes to Europe!  -   

Our "Twins" in Lucon, Vendee,  France!

Fellowship and friendship across the English Channel...… Nine Rotarians have returned from a most wonderful weekend, shared with les Rotarians de Lucon in the beautiful countryside of the Vendee.
Despite travel chaos, we all arrived, by trains, boats and cars, to be met by wonderful hosts in their homes. The time we spent was organized so that we never had a moment's rest (haha!) and were always about to enjoy the next meal, the next wines, the next conversation.
We were receiving reciprocal hospitality after the Luconnaises visited us in Welwyn Garden City for our 90th anniversary. We were there to celebrate the 50eme anniversaire of their foundations. Congratultaions Rotariens de Lucon!!!
This is truly what Rotary can bring to those who join - friendships that last over many years.
