Greetings from our District Governer

A whole year of challenge and change.

It is now a full twelve months since we started the first lockdown – let’s hope that the ‘road map’ will lead to the final ending of this challenging time for us all.  But we have to be patient.

Throughout the challenges that we have all faced, Rotarians have adapted to what is possible in order to maintain the friendship and fellowship within our Clubs and to ensure that we are still making a difference within our communities at home and abroad. The articles in this and previous newsletters demonstrate the range of successful activities that members within our District have been engaged in.  A ‘can do’ attitude has prevailed and members have adapted to what is possible. This has also been very evident in the many online Club Meetings and Charters that I have attended.

As we move through the next few months we have to be patient and follow Government guidelines but we can use the time to prepare for the future. This is happening in all areas of Rotary with training sessions and seminars for incoming leaders within our Clubs and District. At the same time I know that many Clubs are having the conversation as to how they might adapt to life post Covid. These conversations will culminate at District and Club Assemblies.

Within our communities, we are all going to adapt to the changes brought about by the last year that impact upon us – whether they are in relation to working patterns, shopping patterns or the use of modern technology. I believe that the need for Rotary will be as great, if not greater, in the future than it has ever been; a Rotary experience that focuses on the needs of its members which, in turn, leads to opportunities to create lasting change in ourselves and our communities.

As we move through the coming months and new life is evident in our gardens, let’s use our Rotarian spirit, our ‘can do’ attitude, in order to prepare for the future so that we can evidence a resurgence of Rotary, in all its aspects, within our communities.

Andrew Bateman, District Governer
