History of Rotary Club of Pinner - 1970 to 1999

Funds were raised towards a Woman's Ward day room at the Northwood and Pinner Cottage Hospital. Pinner House residents were taken to Whipsnade Zoo and musical instruments were provided for the boys of St Michael's School.

A sad year overshadowed by the death of the President Arthur White during his year of office. The President's widow Ros agreed that in his memory, donations were to be split between Pinner United Free Church, the Venture Club for Boys and a garden seat at a suitable venue.

Money was raised to supply two beds for 's Hospital. Past-presidents Sir Rodney Swiss and George Turrell were elected Honorary Members of the Club.

The Walter Millard Prize was awarded to student nurse P. Soriano. We sponsored for the Royal Jubilee Youth Concert and also for Youth Speaks.

This year marked the 75th Anniversary of Rotary International and our Club celebrated with a special meeting with former members as guests. There a visit by 10 members to Brugge West led by P.P. Stanley Hall.
