A word from our District Governor, David Hood

Join us in Scarborough!

4th to 6th October 2019

David Hood International Ambassador‘We look forward to welcoming our Rotarians, members of Inner Wheel, Satellite Clubs, Rotaract, Interact, partners and guests to our annual conference weekend in Scarborough. It’s going to be a fun, friendly, fabulous weekend!

Scarborough is the original seaside resort; stunning scenery, glorious beaches, loads to see and do – is it any wonder that people have been flocking here for nearly 400 years.

“I had no idea how much Rotary did until I came to Conference”–feedback from a 2018 delegate.

The Difference is You 2019 Conference Logo Whether you are a long time Rotarian, a newbie or a partner who wonders what it’s all about, come and find out for yourself. We’ve listened to members’ feedback and we’re working hard to make it a weekend to remember – inspiring speakers, lots of interaction, opportunities to learn from each other and have some fun. Come away with ideas and practical support to take action and create lasting change in our communities at home and around the globe. Rotary certainly Connects The World.

Next Steps…

Helping out in the Community

Over the last few days, members of the Rotary Club of Belper and Duffield have been hard at work at various community events in Belper and surrounding areas. Their biggest commitment was to provide a team of eight stewards all day from 7am for the Belper Food, Drink and Craft Festival that took place across the town centre of Belper on Sunday, 7th July. Members of the club provided over 80 hours of work in total for this very busy event. The town centre was full of visitors enjoying themselves all day.

Rotary members helped by manning road closures and ensuring the safety of pedestrians in the Market Place whilst traffic was moving to and from the Coppice Car Park. In addition to their work at the Food Festival the Rotary Club also had stalls over the last couple of weekends at Duffield Carnival and at Little Eaton Carnival, providing games with prizes for children and their parents. Lots of fun for all.

On a different level, club members were also involved in their regular monthly litter pick across Belper, when several bags of litter were collected from various areas around the town. King Street during the Belper Food Festival
