Presidents Message 2021 - 2022

 

I am proud to have been elected as President of South Woodham Ferrers Rotary Club.

The Rotary club South Woodham Ferrers has, like all of the Country and The World , gone through a devastating time over the last year,  and let us hope that we are now seeing a light at the end of this long tunnel.

 The Roll of Rotary is to help the local Community , charities ,and individuals where needed and is aided by our fundraising activities throughout the year.

Many of these, over the last year, have suffered through a restriction in our fundraising activities affecting us and charities alike.  Some of our usual events "Swimarathon" and the  "Christmas sleigh" we have had to cancel due to the Coronavirus to the dismay of local residents.

 We are now planning towards some normality later this year and look forward, (we hope) to bringing back our sleigh through the streets of Woodham at Xmas, which we know is enjoyed and well supported by all,  for which we thank you.

The Swimarathon is also on the agenda to take place in March 2022 when we look forward to the great support we get from Schools, Clubs, Parents, etc.

Both these activities raise welcome funds for us to support others where needed and we can only thank the Residents of South Woodham for their generosity.

We will be planning other activities for the coming Rotary year and will keep you posted in due course.

 It is not all work in Rotary as we have many social events which we share with partners and have many enjoyable times together.

You too could help us plan events and of course enjoy what we do to bring some comfort to others in need. 

To learn how to join us and gain more information about what we do contact us via our “Contact Us” page of our website  www.swfrotaryclub.co.uk

or if you know or see me, please stop me for a few words.

 I wish all a much better 2021/22 and below you will see some of the good causes we have helped in recent times
