The Rotary Club of Royston, England.
Karin Weston welcomes you to our website.
"My Presidential year is now here, and I’m really looking forward to it. I have a hard act to follow – our outgoing President David Williams has had a great year, as you can see if you view our scrapbook for the previous 12 months, with its pictures and stories of a string of successful events. I hope that as the year progresses you will see an equally impressive range of activities and news in the current year's scrapbook, starting off with a report on the Presidential Handover Dinner at Magdalene College, Cambridge.
The international strapline for the new Rotary year is ‘Rotary Serving Humanity’ and I know the Rotary Club of Royston will live up to that. We try to serve our local community in various ways: just take a look at our Youth activities, such as Youth Speaks, the Technology Tournament and Youth Makes Music. We join with four other local Rotary Clubs to organise ‘Kids Out’, a day of fun for special needs children. Our annual Swimathon raises money for each team’s nominated charity and for Rotary Charities. We organise the superb Kite Festival each year on Therfield Heath and since 1985 we’ve supported Rotary’s global battle to end polio and this is now so close that it may actually happen this year.
We work hard at these worthwhile activities, but we’ve not forgotten how to party - we organise some great social events throughout the year. Every new Club President chooses a special charity for the year and mine is to be Herts Air Ambulance, something we hope we never need to use, but still want to know that it is there.
I hope you like what we are doing; and you'll get a flavour of some of our activities by looking at the scrolling pictures below. If so, we’d love to meet you – we could tell you some more, and you might like to join us for an evening or two. We’re very friendly. All you have to do is call."
