Fellowship & Luncheon

Fellowship is Rotary - much can be spoken; many a word is quoted,  but in Rotary the true meaning will be found that is equal to all.

Club meetings are normally held on Thursdays at 12:45 for 1 pm. Unfortunately they have temporarily been suspended because of the coronavirus crisis.

The club meeting is held on a Thursday - 12:45 for 1pm at the Ivy Hill Hotel, Writtle Road, Margaretting, Essex, CM4 0EH, or at some other venue in the Chelmsford area. If you would like to attend one of our lunchtime meetings, just contact our Attendance Officer, Malcolm Hamlyn. We'll be pleased to welcome you!

Christmas Party

Fifty-five members and guests descended on Little Channels on Wednesday, 11 December 2019, for our Christmas Party. There were the traditional turkey and Christmas pudding options for those who wanted them, with alternatives available for those who had already got fed up with Christmas fare or simply preferred something else.

Angela has now left us to join the Rotary Club of Maldon and Alan became an Honorary Member after having a stroke a couple of years ago. (That’s Alan and his wife Anne in the photograph.)

Another couple we were pleased to see were Tony and Brenda Stubbings, Tony having been unable to attend meetings for some time for personal reasons.

After lunch we were entertained by a choir from the Cathedral School, who sang a number of Christmas songs under the guidance of their Head Teacher. Each child received a bag of chocolate as a “thank you”.

We finished with the usual notices, the presentation of a certificate to our newest Business Partner and the Rotary Toast.
