However, much of the meeting was given to a discussion of the organisation of the Club for the next Rotary year and the future.

The most significant decision was to stop appointing Committee Chairs. Last year we kept the office but abolished the Committees themselves. Instead of consisting of the officers and Committee Chairs, in future the Council will consist of the officers plus three other members elected for six months at a time. Accordingly the Council for the first half of 2024-25 will be:

  • President: Francis Whitbread
  • 1st Vice President: Graham Furnival
  • 2nd Vice President: Anne Moriaty
  • Secretary: Jenny Black
  • Treasurer: Bob Booker
  • Other members: David Axon, Keith Dabbs and Geoff Dickman

Keith will also continue as Assistant Secretary.

This change means that we will be asking for volunteers to lead the projects we undertake rather than relying on the relevant Committee Chair as in the past.

Members agreed that the annual subscription should remain at £150 as recommended by the Treasurer.

Next week we will meet at Sanctus for the last time. We intend to continue supporting them by becoming one of their Centurions.
