We have created a new category of membership due to increased demand from busy people. You can now become a 'Monthly Member' committing to one breakfast meeting each month (we hope you will also do some social or service activity each month as well) at £23 per month. This includes the cost of your breakfast and your national affiliation fee. This is a form of Full Rotary Membership. Interested? then give Greg a ring on 07850 791324.

Our member Dr Jim McWhirter is leading projects in Uganda. 'Our next big project is the refurbishment of the maternity ward and operating theatre at Freda Carr Hospital, Ngora, in north eastern Uganda which is a very poor area. Planning for this is progressing well in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Kampala Central and we expect to submit an application for a Rotary Global Grant this autumn. The vocational training team which visited from Rotary District 1090 this spring was enthusiastically received. We are optimistic that we can initiate a major transformation in this rundown hospital along the lines of the work that succeeded so well at Kamuli in the past. This project which will greatly improve the lives of mothers, babies and surgical patients in this area.'
We will keep you updated on progress
