Rotary in the Thames Valley - a New Dimension

Thames Valley e-Rotary is a new venture, introducing a different set of opportunities for those wishing to support their local community but unable to participate regularly though pressures of work, family or travel. This new group operates online with regular discussions, interesting speakers and support for local communities..

Does your day consist of a regular commute, long hours working to earn a living and enhance your career, and the remaining time spent with the family? Or are you a mother with young children, finding that keeping them occupied and out of mischief is a full time occupation? Or maybe your coming up to retirement and looking for new interests and a new circle of friends? Whatever the reason, is one day very much like the next?
Yet, deep down, you'd also like an opportunity to make a positive contribution to local life?
Your main barrier is lack of time!

Thames Valley e-Rotary could offer a solution. No matter your background, age, experience or skills, Rotary can bring a new dimension into your life. Why not try us and find out for yourself? .  Our aim is to offer Rotary 24/7 so you can keep informed of the latest developments and projects and offer what time you can to participate in activities undertaken by ordinary people just like yourself.

Contact Secretary Anne Cooper at Thames Valley e-Rotary and we’ll get back to you.
