Greetings from our District Governer

It’s getting brighter
If you are like me, it is so good to feel that Spring is finally upon us. 

The snowdrops are out, crocuses are blooming, the first daffodils are appearing and daylight hours are extending. All this creates a feel good factor.

Added to this, the vaccine roll out is gaining pace and soon, hopefully, we will be a part of the Road Map out of  lockdown and a return to more freedom in all walks of our lives. But we will have to be patient, careful and measured in our response.

But, will we ever really return to the patterns of Rotary that we experienced prior to February 2020?

I know that many Clubs have taken the opportunity to reflect on what Rotary means to them and how they, as individuals and Clubs, want to experience Rotary in their lives. And, above all, how do we get all those community volunteers who have been engaged during the last year, to embrace Rotary.

The pandemic has changed the working and leisure life patterns for so many and it is predicted that they will not simply turn the clock back. If we embrace and adapt to the reality of today, we will be able to grow our Rotary and continue to make a real difference in our communities.

A big thank you to all those Rotarians who continue to make that difference through the myriad of Rotary activities are still taking place throughout the District and beyond. A special thanks to all those who have and continue to support 

COVID testing programmes and vaccination hubs within our individual communities

Our Global Grant initiative for Beirut

Together we can achieve so much.

My best wishes to you all as – brighter days are coming

Andrew Bateman, District Governer
