President Cathy Osselton writes…
I have looked forward to taking over as President for the year 2021-2022. Last year was a difficult time for the club as a consequence of COVID and our activities were severely restricted. This year I hope that we shall be able to get back to some normality. My main objective is to grow our membership and ensure that members have an enjoyable and productive year. I have put together a comprehensive program, updated details of which will be posted on this website: see “What’s NEXT”.
Borderland Rotary ..
Borderland Rotary was founded in 1990 with evening meetings in the Oswestry area. Based at the Sweeney Hall Country Hotel, Morda, we meet once a month to discuss Club business and projects. There are also regular social and other activities, sometimes elsewhere.
Our members are drawn from the town of Oswestry and the surrounding areas of Shropshire and Wales.
We are a dual gender club and actively support the inclusion of lady Rotarians.
Guests attend our social meetings, frequently with a visiting speaker.
Be part of a global network of volunteers, trying to make the world a better place. Please also see the 'links & news' page for information from the local district and live feeds from Rotary International and Rotary International in GB&I.
