Have your say

Members of the Havant Rotary Club are holding at their second ‘get to know you’ breakfast for potential new members living or working in the club’s catchment area of Havant, Hayling Island, Emsworth and Rowlands Castle.

The breakfast is to be held at the Brookfield Hotel, Emsworth, on Thursday, November 5 from 7.30am-8.30am.

There is no charge and no obligation to join.

This follows the successful meeting in November last year which culminated in seven new faces joining the ranks and the invitation is open to men and women of all ages who have a business, professional or community service background and are interested in utilising their skills and experience in helping others while increasing their own social network and having fun.

The club calendar includes the support of many good causes both locally and internationally, the running of competitions and events for the young and elderly, vocational visits, country walks, sports competitions, weekends away and much more.

Just two examples of their work in the community are the Santa sleigh runs, which adds excitement for hundreds of children at Christmas as well as raising valuable funds and on the world stage, the sponsorship of Shelter Boxes which contain a tent and a range of life-saving supplies to people in disaster and humanitarian crisis areas.

Havant is one of 1,810 Rotary clubs in Britain and Ireland with a total of 51,000 members.

It is one of 34,000 clubs with 1.2 million members in 200 countries worldwide.

Membership ensures a welcome to any club with the vast opportunities and range of activities this offers.

Come along and hear all about what the Havant club is doing and see if this could be for you.
