East Cliff Open Invitation

We'd be delighted to see you

Dear      

 I am writing on behalf of the Rotary Club to invite you to join us in 2018 at one or more of the evening dinner meetings listed below that you wish, when we have what promise to be interesting topics.

East Cliff Rotary meets on alternate Thursday evenings at 7pm in the Bar of The West Hants Club which is in Roslin Road, Talbot Woods. There is good free parking and you can be sure of a warm welcome and a good meal. The cost is £16 – payable on the evening.

There is no commitment to join us in Rotary but we hope that this taster of how we run our club throughout the year may give you a better understanding and appreciation of how acquaintances use fellowship to develop friendship. You will learn how Rotarians pool their various skills and resources when we take on a challenge to raise some charity funds or launch a project to try to change the lives of others for the better. 

We ask you to please advise our secretary Simon by email of your intention to attend a meeting by 8pm on the Tuesday evening prior, he will ask you to choose menu options for a two course dinner. We assemble at table at 7.30pm and usually finish our meal and club announcements etc. by 9pm and this gives our speaker a good 30 minutes to give their presentation with usually time for questions. We are normally finished by 9.45pm.

Should you have booked to attend and for any reason cannot, please let Simon know asap so we can try and avoid payment for a meal not taken. If you have a friend you would like to bring please advise Paul, our ladies/partners are very welcome when we have our periodic spouse evenings.

Please join us in the Bar for a pre meal drink and make yourself known to our members when you arrive so that they can introduce themselves.
