About us

Welcome from President Gill Redfern

I am honoured and proud to be given the opportunity to take on the role of President of Glossop Rotary club in its 83rd year.

I would like to thank our outgoing president David Phillips who has successfully guided the club through the past 12 months in what can only be described as unprecedented in its challenge. Despite the challenges Glossop Rotary has been able to adapt to zoom meetings and continued to meet weekly. We have been able to provide small grants to local projects, deliver PPE to local hospice and care homes and collect 336 pairs of shoes as part of a joint project with Rotary clubs in the North West for shoe Aid. We were able to provide our annual contribution of crocus bulbs to be planted in our local parks as well as one of our members raising money through his online Hubble Telescope talk to other Rotary clubs via zoom in support of Rotary’s End Polio now foundation charity.

As we start to come through this pandemic my aim is to support the club to achieve the ambitious goals we have set ourselves for the coming year, raising funds for and delivering great projects in our local community as well as raising funds for projects to be delivered internationally. Please see link to ‘what we do’. In early October We will be holding a great ‘Last Night of the Proms’ event to raise funds which I look forward to being able to welcome you to. Link attached.

I will aim to support the club to be able to continue where we left off pre covid and once again deliver projects in our local schools that include the Technology challenge, science talks, garden project and an exciting new sports event we are in the process of planning.

I am looking forward to the year ahead. I hope to be able to look back on my year as president with a sense of achievement and pride in all we have achieved as those who have gone before me have been able to do.

Glosssop Rotary meet weekly, alternating one week on zoom and one week at Windy Harbour Restaurant. If you would like to find out more about the club I would welcome the opportunity of meeting you.  Please contact our secretary ………
