Our President 2019/20

Our President this year is Nolene Harris and below she considers the forthcoming year for the Club and for Rotary as an organisation:

Rotary remains one of the biggest humanitarian organisations in the world.

In the 1980's Rotary decided to start an initiative for the eradication of Polio world-wide. Being the driving force for this, with the help of other organisations, we have reduced the cases of Polio from 350,000 to a handful of around 30 cases worldwide.  Special thanks to the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation who donate £2 for every Pound we raise. This is an ongoing programme and we will eradicate Polio!

Langley Park Rotary Club has a healthy membership of circa 50 men and women who give their time to help others. Membership has been addressed to ensure it is relevant to today's world and we now have different types of membership incorporating Family, Corporate & Associate members, as well as the more flexible Satellite clubs. Satellite clubs meet at a time of day to suit members, with different thoughts that represent our community.

We have an enormous amount of fun whilst raising funds for various charities. The Langley Park Beer Festival (for details please click here) which we will be holding on 28th and 29th September will be our fourth beer festival - last year our event raised over £10,000 for charities and the Charities and local Causes we supported can be seen here.

A new initiative we are starting, is to tackle loneliness which has a major impact on health and wellbeing.

Rotary's motto is Service above Self and whilst we are raising funds for many good causes we have the most amazing fellowship that I have ever encounted!

Personally I can say that Langley Park Rotary Club has certainly enhanced my life, whilst at the same time being able to enhance the lives of others.  For a list of our meeting events, please either refer to our 'next six events' to the left of this page, or to see our Diary for thenext 12 months, please click here.
