President Julia's Legacy

A recognition of Pres. Julia's leadership during covid 19


Club members please log in for more information.

Members of the Rotary Club of Stourbridge have acknowledged with gratitude, the leadership provided by the retiring President, Julia Savage.  In the face of the restrictions imposed by the Covid 19 pandemic, Julia had more than stepped up to the mark to ensure the well-being of the club members and to maintain as far as the regulations allowed, the service to local and international community needs that is the hallmark of the Rotary movement.

During a year which should have provided opportunities for Julia to promote her personal concerns for charitable support, Julia has focussed more on ensuring continuity of membership through the maintenance of weekly assembly by online means rather than via the traditional lunchtime meetings.

Tony Tatford, the incoming President said, “All members are extremely grateful to Julia.  We recognize the disappointment she has faced at the loss of so many opportunities to achieve the substantial Rotary service she had plans for during this past year.  Whilst many other clubs have struggled to survive, the Rotary Club of Stourbridge has greatly benefitted from Julia’s tenacity, conviction and determination.  As the lockdown seems to be coming to an end, the club is secure, determined and equipped to respond to needs in the coming months as it looks to celebrate 100 years of service. This will be Julia’s greatest legacy as a President of this club.”

Despite the challenges, the Rotary Club of Stourbridge has already donated over £7000 to good causes in the past year. The year accounts indicate a further almost £10,000 is available for the Julia to allocate to her nominated Presidential Charities.
