Greetings from our District Governer

Welcome to 2021.   Brighter Days are Coming.

The last year may have been a challenging time for all of us, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. 

Whilst for so many it will be  a relief to see the end of 2020,  there will have been important learning experiences brought about during last few months – not least the realisation of the really important things in our lives. 

As Rotarians, the pandemic has not stopped us – we have continued to make a difference within our communities in so many different ways. We have undertaken different activities and have found ways to maintain strong fellowship and provide service.  I read the following in one Club’s newsletter and how very true it is

We have seen events unfold that have caused us to have to re-think our strategies, adapt to the limitations and adopt new ways of meeting and working together to continue the good work of Rotary.  We have not put up the ‘closed for business sign’ and resigned ourselves to doing nothing’.

From the challenge of the last 9 months, Rotary will grow.  Clubs have found additional ways of meeting, maintaining fellowship and of providing service. Rotary within our District has continued and will continue in the coming year. Some of the changes that Clubs have faced have brought about renewed enthusiasm and plans for a new way of working, for others the return to ‘normality’ is eagerly anticipated. Whatever the future holds, we are all, as Rotarians, committed to undertake activities that help make the world a safer and better place for all.  That must be our legacy.

My best wishes to you all.

Andrew Bateman, District Governer
