On Wednesday 29 March, we will be holding our next Experience Rotary event in the offices of ATEED. This is the 24th in a series that has been running for many years with the aim of growing the Club. The main attraction will be an address by Rob Waddell of Olympics fame. An invitation to this event will be circulated shortly. However, due to limitations of this venue’s space, we are unable to invite the whole Club – but if you bring someone along, your guest or guests will automatically convey a right of entry for you personally! PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN TO HELP!
Best regards in Rotary
John F Holding
