If you would like to consider joining Rotary in your area, there will be a very warm welcome from the Rotary Club of Langport & Somerton.
Joining Rotary is not expensive with an annual subscription of just £120 (2016/17), plus the cost of any meals which at typically between £10 and £15, with the normal dinner meetings costing just £12.
While we meet weekly, we understand that business, family or private commitments can affect how often members attend. It is obvious to assume that the more you put in to Rotary the more satisfaction you get out, so we encourage members to attend as often as they can.
Come along and try it for a few meetings to see if Rotary is for you; if it is, then we can aim to induct you into Rotary within a few weeks.
If you would like to know more please contact our Secretary, Clive Sills.
MEMBERSHIP EXPLOSION 2017/18
The Rotary year runs from 1st July each year, so the Club is delighted to report that in the 2017/2018 Rotary year the Club has inducted no less than 6 new members taking us to a membership of 24 - the highest it has been for many years.
Stuart Cave lives at Curry Rivel and until recently has been a Corporate Director at Mendip District Council. Stuart is proving to be a most able Rotarian with a can-do attitude to everything we do.
Owen Paterson transfered to us from the Rotary Club of Ilminster as he has moved to our area, but his Rotary experience is plentiful, including "big project" experience with Rotary in New Zealand. Being a retired broadcaster, Owen has quickly taken the lead with our school-based thespian work, in partnership with his previous Club.
Michelle and Rob Crumb have lived in the area for many years. Michele joins the Club with a career in NHS Management behind her, while Rob has run his own plumbing business for many years in the Langport area. Both have got stuck into the Club's activities especially with the Club's 70th celebrations.
Having moved into the area from Lincolnshire, we have welcomed to the Club, Robert Maxwell who has transferred from Rotary District 1070. The most recent arrival is Joy Bailey from Martock who has experience of Inner Wheel, where she has been a member, and Rotary where her husband is a member of the Yeo Vale Club. Neither have been allowed to sit on their laurels with Robert being part of the Steam Spectacular project team and Joy expressing an interest in working on our social media
In the year when the Club celebrated its 70th Birthday with recognition for two of our elder statesmen, PDG Stan Jones and PP Roger Chadbourne, it has been heartening to see the enthusiastic growth of the Club.
