They see Rotary as a great way of using their spare time and skills. Richard, who was brought up in Africa, also has a keen interest in helping third world countries and will be a great addition to our International team. Andrew, an accountant, has a wealth of experience in publicity, photography and local radio. The club are keen to use this experience to help promote the club events and activities going forward.
The next social event the club are planning is a visit to the Quantock Brewery, Bishop Lydeard, together with Rotarians from the Taunton Vale Rotary Club. This evening visit on Monday 27th March will be a great opportunity for local Rotarians to meet up and discuss local projects, whilst enjoying some of the new brews being produced by the Brewery.
As part of our continued support for Ukraine the club is exploring a twinning association with the Rotary Club of Uzhgorod-Skala, in Ukraine. The city of Uzhgorod is situated in the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine, near the borders of Slovakie & Hungary. Our President Angela and their President, Viktor Medvid, have already exchanged greetings via email and we aim to set up a Whats App group to swap ideas and discuss ways we can help them.
