About us



A message from our new president, Alan Pomfret.


Presidential Statement 2022-2023


Firstly let me thank our outgoing President Geoff Shaw who has led the club during the last 18 months with all the COVID restrictions that affected our activities.


Since taking over as President of the Rotary Club of Newton-le-Willows in July 2022  I am pleased to report that our club is back to a  more “normal” routine of face to face club meetings and engaging with the local community through various events. These events include the Town Show, Earlestown Thrive and the return of the Beer Festival on September 8th, 9th and 10th at The Earlestown Viaduct Sports & Social Club. More activities will be planned throughout the Rotary year


We continue to meet in person with our new meeting time schedule starting on the 1st October 2022.


In order to make the club as accessible as possible to all members of our community, we will be meeting at lunch time (1230 to 1400) on the first, second and third Tuesday of the month at Haydock Park Golf Club.


During the second week of each month the various committees meet at a time and venue to suit (which may also be a digital platform).


The business meeting is now held on the fourth Tuesday of the month in the evening at a relevant venue.


On the occasion that there is a fifth Tuesday in the month various social functions will be arranged.


It is hoped and envisaged that this new flexible approach will appeal to both existing members and new recruits.


As we support all the key Rotary aims, an example par excellence is the planting of crocus corms by many different community organisations to celebrate the work Rotary has done to eradicate polio. We aim to plant this years crocus corms before October 24 which is World Polio Day.


The club is committed to Service above Self and this is reflected in all our work in both the local community and internationally.


We will be visiting the local communities with our Santa Float throughout the month of December. The sight of Santa and his helpers always bring Christmas cheer to our community and helps raise funds, which allows us to support a wide range of community groups and good causes.


Finally- Rotary gives us all the opportunity to serve. Its business is mankind and its product is service. Rotarians provide community service to both local  and international communities.

This is perhaps the best reason for becoming and continuing to be a Rotarian: the chance to do something else and to sense the self-fulfilment that comes in the process. It is richly rewarding.
