President Urs' Mission Statement for the Rotary Year 2020/21.


It is an honour and a privilege to be the President of the Rotary Club of Kensington and Chelsea for the Rotary year 2020/21.


Before the merger of Kensington and Chelsea I was a member of the Rotary Club of Chelsea with two previous presidencies.  I am now seeing our progress from an alternate side to my predecessor PP Gerhard.  It will continue to be a challenging task to strengthen our club whilst continuing to merge and enhance the activities and projects that were at the heart of both clubs. To emphasise our unity I would like to adopt a new design for our Club and create a new banner.


Like my predecessor, I wish to promote and grow our local projects to get ourClub closer to our local communities. We will also develop local projects in the very active and diverse community that is the present-day Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. With a diverse membership structure, we will also continue our international activities on various levels


One of my aims as club president is to lead our Club to a Rotary presidential citation. I have a strong belief that, if we all work together successfully, everyone will benefit and individual thought can add much to the range of views.  We are all different, but we share a common goal, which is to make the world a better place. Under my presidency we will continue to welcome all faiths and all political opinions. Unity in diversity!


It will not be easy to lead the club under current circumstances. However, I will do my best and welcome your help in any shape and form. I will be humble in my approach and, fortune permitting, I can hopefully surprise you with some positive developments.  I am a strong believer that you should never take credit for other people’s work. 


Let’s use the relative flexibility given by RI to our Club and work together; let us all go forward in Rotary together!
