Rotarians keep busy

Wroxham Bure Valley Rotary Club has sent us a report of its latest activities. It’s good to see how busy members have been helping others during these difficult times.

Like many organisations, we have been restricted to electronic Zoom meetings as our sole means of communication over recent weeks.

However, with the recent relaxations in the hospitality sector, and thanks to the great efforts of our regular meeting hosts at Wroxham Barns, we were able to hold a socially distanced meeting early in July, in the outdoor covered courtyard cafe area.

July marks the start of the new Rotary year and the presidential mantle has now been passed to new president Robin Baines. We were also delighted to welcome our district governor, Jonathan King, to his first face-to-face club meeting of his new year in office. The meeting was well attended and we hope over the next few weeks to continue with a mix of electronic and socially distanced face to face meetings.

While we don’t expect much immediate activity, we are hoping and planning that our Christmas collections will be taking place as usual.

Meantime, we have not been idle… a working group spent a recent summer evening varnishing all the picnic benches on Granary Staithe in Hoveton. We were pleased to be able to do this to help the local community as this is becoming a popular area with locals and visitors alike.

Going forward, the end of the restrictions and return to “normal” is obviously still some way off, so we wish everyone a safe passage through these difficult times and in the true Rotary spirit of “Service above Self” we have members ready and willing to help out in the local community wherever the need arises.

If you have something you think we can help with, in the first instance please contact our president, Robin Baines, on 01603 782920 or 07721 465647
