This year for the first time the club elected 4 members of
the club to be Presidents throughout the Presidential year 2021 to 2022. All
four Gordon Symon, Bruce Wilson, Andy Izat and Ian Donald have served as
Presidents in the past and are looking forward to an exciting year ahead and
leading the club forward.
Each will serve a 3 month term starting with Andy then Gordon followed by Ian
and finishing off with Bruce who will in June hand over the reins to our only
second lady President Debbie Renton.
The club has started to meet face to face but we are able to welcome speakers
using zoom and have interactive meetings.
We meet in the Glen Golf Club on Tantallon Terrace every Tuesday at 6pm where
members can hear a variety of speakers as well as take part in other themed
nights and activities. We invite other Rotarians to join us either in person or
interactively on Zoom.
We organise and carry out various fundraising events such as our Charity Golf
Day which partially supports Children’s Hospice Across Scotland (CHAS) as well
as organising a successful annual Classic Car Tour which raises money for local
organisations as well as other nominated Scottish based charities. This year’s
tour will take place on Sunday 24th April 2022 with a run from Tesco
at North Berwick into the Borders returning to Gosford House at Longniddry.
We always welcome potential new members to the club and would be pleased to see
anyone interested in the activities and ideals of Rotary to help not only
locally with projects, organisations or individuals but also on a National as
well as on an International basis.
At the same time we would welcome anyone who would like to help the club
achieve its aims and objectives without the commitment of full membership. If
you are interested in helping in either way please contact the club via our
Facebook page or via the contact page of this website.
We look forward to being able to help our local Community not only financially
but also by helping where help is needed to support local groups and
organisations in a more practical way.
We and all our
members will uphold the Rotary ideal of “Service above Self”

The Bassrock, in centre top above is home to more than 100,000 gannets, making it the world's largest single rock gannet colony. Have a look at the Scottish seabird centre.
