President's Welcome

Chantry Rotary Presedent

I am delighted to have this opportunity to welcome you to our website and to say a little about the club.
After nearly 20 month of meeting by Zoom we happily returned to face-to-face meetings on 20 July and it was with some trepidation that we faced this Brave New World.  There should have been no doubts, as the spirit of Chantry has shone through.   We started by inducting a new member, Pat Langham, and have continued with well attended weekly meetings and a palpable ‘can do’ approach as evidenced by a variety of social events: bowling afternoon, fellowship three-day break and ladies’ night.    Our fund raising - with the emphasis on the fun - has resumed with  a Golf Day and a splendid Brass Band Concert.  

Wakefield Chanty’s commitment to supporting local charities,  both practical and financial, continued unabated throughout lockdown supporting among others: Community Awareness Programme, Homestart and Support Dogs.

Drop in to see for yourself at St Pierre Hotel any Tuesday at 6.30 for 7.00 and receive a warm welcome.
Robin Richmond
President
