Keswick Rotary is always welcoming to applications from new members. We are a diverse group of 35 or so men and women who like to make a difference in the local community and have some fun along the way.
Press release - Keswick Rotary new members
Three of the best. Keswick Rotary’s delighted to have three new members join the Club in the past few weeks.
Steve Oldfield is a retired senior police officer from Yorkshire, now living in Threlkeld. Steve knew several Rotary members and was attracted by the opportunity to work in the local community as well as by the active social activities in the Club.
Bert Richardson came next. He’s lived in the North Lakes for many years serving as a County Councillor and has also been a longstanding Captain and President of Keswick Golf Club. He commented “I think Rotary is a good organisation and long may it continue to support those who are less fortunate”. He is particularly keen to ensure access to clean water for everyone.
Ian Plant is our third new member. He is a longstanding resident of Keswick and, more recently, of Threlkeld. Ian runs his own Independent Financial Advisor business in Keswick. He admits that Rotary is a different world for him with lots of new things to learn. Ian said “At this early stage, my focus is on making a difference to what Rotary can do locally and spending my time getting involved where I can”.
Club President Neil Beresford is delighted to have three new members who bring a range of different experience and skills. He commented “ It’s great to have new members who want to get involved in the Club’s community work - as well as joining in our social activities and visits - everything from a recent tour of the Armouries to a monthly pub social, from quiz nights to golf competitions, from guided group hiking to a day at the races”.
