Business Meeting

Thu, Nov 10th 2016 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Club gathers to discuss ongoing business


There was no speaker at last week's Rotary Club meeting so members discussed on-going business.  International Convenor Linden Warburton reported that the micro-finance scheme was working satisfactorily.  The money lent to a taxi driver in Malawi had enabled him to get his tut-tut repaired and back on the road and he had repaid the money lent.  £200 had been lent to a farmer in Cambodia towards purchasing a tractor and altogether 3 loans totalling £750 had been made which underlined the success of the project.  There are still some tickets left for the film night on 3rd December and they can be obtained £8 - which includes a glass of wine - at the Cinema Box Office at the Hub.  President Jim Walker laid the Rotary Club wreath at the War Memorial at the Museum at the Remembrance Day Service on Sunday morning.  Over 100 boxes of Xmas gifts for children in Eastern Europe had been collected and would be dispatched shortly and the organiser Linden Warburton thanked members and Rotary friends for the tremendous benevolent effort.
