ARBROATH ROTARY CLUB CURRENT ACTIVITIES

ARBROATH ROTARY CLUB RECENT ACTIVITIES UP TO JANUARY '21

MEMBERS MAINTAIN TWO GARDENS - THE 2020 BAS RELIEF AT ARBROATH ABBEY AND BRECHIN ROAD ROUNDABOUT HAVE  BEEN CLEANED UP FOR THE WINTER. WE ALSO TIDIED UP SPRINGFIELD PARK ROSE GARDEN AND ARE NOW INVOLVED ON A WEEKLY BASIS AT THE WALLED GARDEN AT HOSPITALFIELD HOUSE.

WHILST THERE HAVE BEEN NO MEETINGS OR FUND RAISING EVENTS SINCE THE LOCKDOWN MANY MEMBERS HAVE DONATED THE WEEKLY MEAL COST. THIS HAS BEEN DISTRIBUTED TO LOCAL ORGANISATIONS IN THE TOWN, ARBROATH FOOD BANK, FOOD PARCEL OLD & ABBEY CHURCH, ANGUS TOY APPEAL, SALVATION ARMY AND FRONTLINE FOOD. MEMBERS HAVE ALSO BEEN VOLUNTEERING AS DRIVERS TO DELIVER FOOD IN THE LOCAL COMMUNITY. 

WE HAVE ALSO REPLACED THE PADS AND BATTERIES AT THE SIX DEFIBRILLATORS ORGANISED BY THE CLUB IN ARBROATH AND FRIOCKHEIM. A COMPLETELY NEW REPLACEMENT DEFIBRILLATOR WAS INSTALLED AT THE RNLI SHED AT THE HARBOUR.

IN NOVEMBER THE CLUB AWARDED THE ROTARY INTERNATIONAL'S HIGHEST AWARD FOR SERVICE TO JAMES WILLIAMSON. JAMES IS A VOLUNTEER WITH ST JOHNS AND LOOKS AFTER THE SIX PUBLIC ACCESS DEFIBRILLATORS IN ARBROATH AND FRIOCKHEIM.

IN DECEMBER OUR CHRISTMAS APPEAL WAS VERY WELL SUPPORTED BY THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AND BUSINESSES. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK TESCO, MORRISONS, HOWDENS, BOWMAN'S SOLICITORS, MILLBANK BUILDERS, DEREK MCNULTY JOINERY, MACDONALD GROUP, PAUL MARTIN PROPERTY, PLUS THE FOLLOWING FOR OUR "BUCKET APPEAL" - PIE BOBS, KEPTIE BAKERY, CLOUD 9, CABELLO HAIR AND ASHBROOK NURSERY; ALSO THE ROTARIANS WHO HAVE KINDLY CONTINUED TO DONATE THEIR WEEKLY MEAL COST AS OUR NORMAL MEETINGS ARE STILL SUSPENDED. IN TOTAL WE HAVE RAISED £16,000 IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS.
