Sunday 31st January saw the first programme in what is planned to be a monthly initiative on Cando FM.

The town has three clubs who were each represented by their president; Dave Coverdale from the Barrow-in-Furness Club, Martin McCleavy from Furness, and Nicola Stuart Wood of Furness Peninsula.

Furness Club's Brian Boyd kept them all in order!

The main thing which came across was the help that each club gives to its local community, with all three clubs working together on joint projects such as assisting with the recent and ongoing Covid 19 vaccination programme at Alfred Barrow Health Centre.

What also came across was the fact that Rotary has changed. Many people still perceive it as a stuffy organisation, but that is far from the truth in 2021. The panel explained that anyone can join and you don't need to be asked - just look on any of the websites where contact details can be found.
