Following government advice to address the Coronavirus outbreak, many meetings and events have been cancelled. However, clubs continue to try to support their local communities in a number of ways.

We value your support and aim to resume normal activities as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, keep safe and well.

QUIZ NGHT - on 24th April
CHARITY GOLF DAY - posptponed until 29th September
CHARTER NIGHT  on 18th June - will be postponed: date TBA
SUMMER EVENING JAZZ CONCERT on 4th July - postponed till 3rd July 2021

To keep everyone in touch, we first held an audio conference using '' when 6 members of the Jazz Committee met by phone to cancel the event.
Thanks go to Helder Lemos for setting up a WhatsApp group to let us share chat, jokes and videos - very popular it is proving to be.
We held our inaugaral Audio/Visual Meeting using Zoom on Thursday 26th March - 

We had a few teething problems, but held our 2nd Zoom meeting - the April Business Meeting - on Thursday 2nd April, with a 75% attendance. We shall improve, but it proved a success and enabled us to join together as Rotarians.
