Forward Looking

The gentle rhythm of Rotary was in evidence yesterday at the Bath & West Show Ground – yes it was the District 1200  Assembly.  Stuart Gilbert (the guy with the tie!), our incoming District Governor, highlighted his plans for 2023/2024.  Stuart reminded us that Rotary International’s theme for the coming year is “Create Hope in the World”. That theme is central to District 1200’s goals. In promoting this Stuart said, “no-one can do everything but everyone can do something” – how true!

Important points included:

  • Establishing eight new clubs in the next two years.
  • All clubs need to consider whether they reflect the communities they serve.
  • Enhancing collaboration between District and clubs.

Rotary Foundation is one of the world’s leading charities. It delivers sustainable solutions with lasting impact. It was no surprise to learn that Rotary Foundation is the District Challenge for 2023/2024. Every club in the District is being asked to promote a Rotary Foundation event.

One of the delights of the morning was the involvement of nine Rotarians from Peru  who are visiting our District for a Friendship Exchange. Each gave a short personal presentation which were very well received.

Breakout sessions followed – all proved to be interesting. 

The four Brue Valley attendees felt it was a successful District Assembly – no doubt of that. District 1200 have much to offer its clubs.
