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, 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 Membership Officers, Joy Bailey or Jane Redfearn.
The Membership Campaign for 2020/21 aims to:
a) Replace the 3 members we have lost in the 2018/19 year and
b) Start a new satellite Club based around the businesses in Langport and Somerton using links to both towns established business groups.
We will do this by:-
1. Contacting those “friends” of our Facebook page who might be interested in Rotary and to invite them to a very informal “chat over a pint” in a suitable hostelry.
2. We will join both the Langport Area Business Group and the Somerton Business Association to raise our profile through these groups. We will then contact members of those groups who we feel would like to work with us in forming a satellite club working people from in and around Somerton.
The new Club will be for people who are still working and/or in business themselves, thereby creating a younger age profile than that of the Langport & Somerton Club.
3. We will link our recruitment campaign to a vibrant programme of activity and will use higher profile fundraising events as a good introduction to potential Rotarians. This might a Ball in aid of the YDH Breast Cancer Unit that will appeal to a wider audience.
Fancy being part of a new Rotary experince in the area?
