President's Message 2019/20
Welcome to the website of Oswestry Borderland Rotary Club.
President David writes…
" Nearly 30 years after joining Borderland Rotary, I felt the time had come to give something back to the club. We have remained a vibrant forward looking group from the Oswestry community who enjoy regular get-togethers to plan and deliver support for local worthy causes.
The most important aspect of the Club continues to be the camaraderie and informality of our member meetings. Fund raising and charitable work follows from this successful formula and I hope as President to be able to continue to guide the Club forward into 2020 to support the Borderland community we serve.
Borderland Rotary ..
Borderland Rotary was founded in 1990 to satisfy a need for an evening Club in the Oswestry area. and we meet at Sweeney Hall Hotel at Morda on a Wednesday evening at 19.30 for 19.45.
Our members are drawn both from the town of Oswestry and the surrounding areas of Shropshire and Montgomeryshire.
We are a dual gender club of close to 40 members and actively support the inclusion of lady Rotarians. We have no corresponding Inner Wheel Club although partners have formed themselves into an ad-hoc group known as the 'Inner Tube' which arranges its own social programme.
Guest speakers are invited to most of our meetings although the first Wednesday in each month is reserved to discuss the business affairs of the Club.
There is a strong sporting bias with members participating in golf, cycling, football, rugby, water polo and wheelchair basketball together with the odd excursions into clay pigeon shooting , bowls and archery.
