About us

  Welcome - From President Keith Brownlie

Our new Club President, Keith Brownlie PHF, took over the reins of the Club

On the 1st July 2023. Keith was previously Rotary District Governor for Essex and East Herts and took over from outgoing President David Ainge. 

He has set out his agenda for the year ahead by prioritising growing the current Club membership and also setting up a new Youth focused Club to run alongside our current Traditional Rotary Club. He will also target young Farmers who have to retire when reaching 25. 

Keith will also focus on the Environment encouraging local action with similar like

minded organisations. He is currently working with the Wilderness Foundation and Yarra Farm both local re-wilding Projects. 

He will also be recruiting for new Club Members at the Halstead Summer Fayre on the 5th August. Where he will present a team of Ex Scouts who plan to row the Atlantic in their Rotary sponsored specially designed boat. 

He welcomes all interested in this brave venture to come along.
