Ukraine – minefield clearance

The Rotary GB&I Ukraine Crisis Taskforce meets regularly with our colleagues from District 2232 in Ukraine, and one of their major projects is to stop people from entering minefields sown as the Russians retreated. The total area affected is the size of the British Isles, but of course this is scattered over the regions, especially in agricultural areas and around Kharkiv. The immediate plan is to provide warning signs which the Civil Defence teams can post around suspected areas. The BBC highlighted them in an article posted at https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-65204053. Please note the Rotary symbol at the bottom edge (see attached photograph)

At a recent Rotary lunch the members of the new Rotary Club of Guildford Wey were pleased to award a Paul Harris Fellowship to the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More Molyneux, in recognition of his support to Rotary in Guildford and its surrounding areas over many years.

Michael was an Honorary Member of the Rotary Club of Guildford for many years before its recent merger in November with the Rotary Club of Guildford District to form the new Guildford Wey Club. Michael has always been only too ready to offer his support to Rotary, as was his father who also had received a Paul Harris Fellowship many years ago.

Paul Harris was the original founder of the Rotary organisation over 110 years ago and the award is granted by members to people, to quote the citation ” in appreciation of tangible and significant  assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among people of the world”
