Les Chant 2023/2024 Club President

July 1st marks the beginning of new Rotary year and is the time when we elect a new President for the Rotary Club of Aylsham. 

Aylsham Rotary Club is a small, but very friendly club which is very commited to the local community and manages to achieve a huge amount through the hard work and community spirit of all its members. With the generousity of the people of Aylsham and district, we manage to raise a lot of money each year to support local, national and international good causes. Most importantly, we are a COMMUNITY club and our ethos over the years has moved more and more to working with the community to improve, support and sustain the excellent work done with people across all age groups.

Les Chant Aylsham Rotary Club President 2023-2024

President Les writes:

"I am thrilled to be taking the helm of our passionate Rotary Club. Let me begin by saying that our club consistently "punches above its weight." This remarkable achievement is a testament to the outstanding leadership of our past members.

One area where our club truly shines is in addressing the local environmental impact. Our Environmental team's tireless efforts have not gone unnoticed and has earned awards for commitment to the environment. It is something we are incredibly proud of, and we must continue this work.

As a Rotary Club, we are acutely aware of the ever-changing and diverse needs of our communities. We take great pride in our ability to respond to community needs here and abroad, making a tangible difference in the lives of those we serve. Our fine standing within the community is of upmost importance to us, and we strive to engage our local community in our fundraising efforts. We are thrilled to have recently welcomed three new members, whose contributions are already making a significant impact.

These new members are a testament to the fact that every individual can make a difference in the efforts of our club. With their support, we can continue to support local and international projects, ensuring the readiness of our disaster fund to aid those in immediate need. Together, we can create hope, not only within ourselves, but also in our local and international communities.
However, it is important to remember that our journey does not solely revolve around work. We must also take time to look after ourselves, our families and continue to have fun. Rotary is more than just the impactful projects we undertake. It's about building fellowship, forging meaningful connections and enjoying leisurely outings to interesting destinations. We believe in the power of camaraderie and the ability to make a difference while having a great time.

Join us on the incredible journey of making a positive change in the world. Rotary offers a unique blend of socialisation and impactful action. Together we can make a difference and create a better future for all."
