The Club is governed by the Council, chaired by the President. The Council also includes the Secretary, Treasurer, President Elect, Junior Vice President, Club Committee Chairs and one elected member from the membership of the Club. Council meets monthly.
Club members join one of a range of Committees:
Club Services Committee:
This committee looks after the day to day running of the Club. Members liaise with our meeting place, are concerned with the welfare of members, arrange sporting events between other Rotary Clubs and in the community, arrange speakers and deal with membership issues, the web site and Business Partners scheme.
Community Services Committee:
This committee identifies ways in which we can support our local communities and maintains contacts locally. Members are involved with a wide range of projects:
- with schools and youth clubs,
- supporting local charities,
- supporting older people,
- working with vulnerable and disadvantaged people.
Some years ago the Club received a bequest which we continue to manage. The bequest was designated to ‘Support health and education in Africa’. The International Committee identifies ways in which this fund can best be used to support those in need. The committee will also identify needs in different parts of the World which the Club might be able to help.
Fund Raising Committee:
This committee is key to our success in supporting our local community. The funds they raise are mostly spent locally to support those in need. This committee is highly successful in organising cabaret nights, concerts, fashion shows and sporting events all of which provide a great deal of fun and enjoyment with the added advantage of raising money to support our community.
