Welcome from President David Newall

David took over from President Pam on 1st July 2022

President David

Following a very successful year as President, Pam Ryan has passed on the chain of office to David Newall. David and his family have lived locally for over thirty years.

The Club goes into it's new year with membership having risen to 45 members and David is keen to encourage more to join.  "We all face a challenging year ahead within our community and overseas, driven by conflict in Ukraine and increased levels of economic problems at home and overseas" explained David at the recent Presidential Handover meeting.  “A strong membership enables us to meet these challenges”.

Skipton Rotary Club is active in supporting those in need in our community and internationally, through service programs which include a number of Youth Programs and fundraising such as the recent Cycle2 Recycle event and the Dragon Boat Races.  The car parking facility at the weekend and busy periods continues to function at Skipton Building Society enabling Rotary to support many local good causes.

Further information about all our activities can be found at www.skiptonrotary.org and on our Facebook page.
