Embrace the Opportunities of Change

Throughout the District, members are responding to the challenges we face with new opportunities to grow Rotary and to engage, perhaps in a different way, with those who want to be a part of what we do.

Covid-19 has created many previously unimaginable challenges for all of us, none more so than how we maintain Fellowship within Clubs and engage in raising funds in order to facilitate our work in communities.

I know that there is a great desire to re-establish face to face meetings but also a desire to explore how Club structures can be adapted to create new opportunities for Fellowship and Membership. As with all events, detailed Risk Assessments are vital and Clubs will shortly be circulated with some guidance on RA for Face to Face events.

Change is still all around us and this is likely to be the environment we all have to work in for months ahead. Whilst some ‘lock down’ restrictions have been lifted for much of the District there are some who are living through re imposed restrictions. Clearly, these localised restrictions are going to be a feature for many of us in the future and this makes planning more challenging than usual, yet no less important.

It may not be in the same way that we have been used to, but things are not the same. Let’s embrace the opportunities of change whilst keeping firm in our commitment to Rotary values.

Andrew Bateman, District Governer
