Presidential Statement 2021-2022



Since taking over as President of the Rotary Club of Newton-le-Willows in January 2021 I am pleased to say that we are now progressing back to more normal times as the public health emergency improves.
We started to meet in person from late June with our new meeting time table. In order to make the club as accessible as possible to all members of our community, we now meet at lunch time twice each month at Haydock Park Golf Club on the first and last Tuesday of each month. During the second week of each month the various committees meet at a time and venue ( which may be a digital platform ) of their own choosing. 
The business meeting is now held on the third Tuesday of the month in the evening at Newton Sports Club. On the occasion of a 5th Tuesday a social function is arranged. It is hoped and envisaged that this new flexible approach will appeal to both existing members and new recruits.
The easing of lock down restrictions is allowing us to 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. 
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 running our Santa Float throughout the month of December. This brings Christmas cheer to our community and helps raise funds, which allows us to support a wide range of good causes.
Finally- Rotary gives us all the opportunity to serve. It’s business is mankind and it’s 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.
