 Latest News and Reports

Rotary in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire is still alive and kicking

--- Even though the current lockdown means that all face to face meetings and events cannot be held.

Most of the Clubs in our District are now meeting regularly via Zoom or other similar platforms. These meetings may be feature guest speakers, online activities (such as quizzes) or simply fellowship so that members and visitors can engage and support each other during these unprecedented times. If you would like to join one of these meetings contact the local Club.

Members are also very active within the community helping with: Shopping, collecting and delivering medicines to those who are shielding or self isolating, producing and distributing PPE(visors, face masks, shields and scrubs), providing a weekly telephone link to the housebound and many more activities.

Clubs are also continuing to raise money to support many of their charities through a variety of inspirational activities. As a District we have also released £22,000 from reserves to support local Hospices and Food Banks.

The Future

As we move towards the start of another Rotary Year on July 1st, preparations are different to usual but no less important.

President Elect training took place over two online meetings and these supported information circulated to each of the 100 Clubs in the District.

District Assembly is the opportunity for members to meet together and find out more about the District wide projects and opportunities that will be held. Again information about these was circulated to all Clubs and Zoom meetings held by the Lead Rotarian for areas within the District. These Zoom meetings proved very popular and informative.

District Handover is normally a special event at the end of June for all members and marks the change of officers within the District. The celebration Lunch that had been planned clearly cannot go ahead and we are awaiting further guidance as to whether a similar event will be possible within a few weeks or whether this will take place via Zoom look out for more information.

District Conference in October is an annual event that is looked forward to with anticipation by members and guests. We have taken the decision to cancel arrangements for this event as it is unclear if such events will be allowed by then and in order to minimize any financial exposure.  Further consideration will be given to the future of the 2020/21 Conference. 

Rotary in Yorkshire and North Lincs is still alive and kicking----- But its different.
