  Sian Franklin - Membership & Mentoring Committee & Past President

Hi!  We are always looking for new members to help with our busy programme of events and projects, both social and community.

If you would like to use some of your time and energy to give something back to the local, national and international community, whilst having some fun and making friends along the way, then you might well enjoy being a rotarian.

Our club meets in Cambridge City once a fortnight where we have a light meal, chat and make friends. We have been running since 1966 and have gone from strength to strength ever since. Often we have a brief talk from a local charity, business, expert such as Blue Smile, the Welding Institute or the Antarctic Survey Team. We also share ideas, decide on the projects we are supporting and who will be doing what. Most people are part of one of our working committees that drive forward our yearly programme, so it is easy to contribute and to feel useful.  We also arrange a wide variety of social outings to choose from.

We are open to setting up another sub-Club at another Time & Place - it would be up to those members involved to decide where and when to have their meetings, with our support.

If you did not want to join the club as a member, but would be able to volunteer to offer some of your time occassionally,  then we always need more people on every project, please get in touch.
