Public Eye

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak Rotary clubs were unable to meet physically but we continued in other ways including video conferencing and a weekly online bulletin. Stories about members’ interests and activities continue to be posted here.

The bulletin was designed to keep club members in touch and also to share what they were up to during lock down.  

As it was just two sides, some entries were too long to be included and so we developed a ‘Weekly bulletin extras’ web page. We ceased producing the bulletin after 25 weeks but agreed that it would be good to continue to have a space to showcase interests and activities of Chelmsford Mildmay Rotarians.

From this point 'Weekly bulletin extras' becomes 'Public Eye'.
