We have a New President

Dale Wilkins becomes President for 2023-2024

2023-2024 Handover

Club members please log in for more information.


On Saturday, 1st July the Rotary year began for incoming President, Dale Wilkins, with a very enjoyable concert at Holy Trinity Church, Amblecote, in conjunction with Viva Musica. A very appreciative audience enjoyed the music and fellowship, as well as raising funds for the new president’s causes. The inaugural address followed at the regular weekly meeting on Wednesday, 5th July, during which President Dale thanked Immediate Past President, Vida Worsey, for a hugely successful year, and the chain of office was passed over to celebrate the 102nd year of Rotary service to the town and local communities.  


Dale will continue to promote the club’s interest and engagement for local causes, including Black Country Food Bank and Mary Stevens Hospice. There will also be support for an international cause close to Dale’s heart, the Sean Devereux Children’s Fund, which does essential work in Liberia in the name of a former university friend of Dale’s who was assassinated in Somalia in 1993 when working on a food distribution programme for UNICEF. 

Having enjoyed the beauty and tranquillity of the local canals during his lockdown walks during the pandemic, Dale also hopes to involve himself and the club in work promoting the upkeep and regeneration of local waterways. In conjunction with his wife, Sally, he will be supporting the White House Cancer Support charity in Dudley, which is close to both their hearts. 

One of Dale’s major fundraising efforts will be a 200 mile sponsored walk between thirteen lifeboat stations on the North and West Wales coast. This will begin at Treaddur Bay in Anglesey, and will be spread across the year, but with the final stretch of 80 miles reaching New Quay in time for the RNLI bicentenary in March 2024. The club has a long association with the New Quay station. 


As in Vida’s year, member recruitment will be key, as we continue to shape the legacy of longstanding Rotarians who are no longer with us.  The website www.stourbridgerotary.org  will provide regular updates on club actions, events and priorities.
