About us

 WEWEWE

On the busiest shopping day of the season � Mirfield Rotarians and friends brought Christmas cheer to shoppers at Morrisons in Heckmondwike.

About 30 members and friends formed a �heavenly choir� with Rodney Green on the keyboard.

They sang traditional carols and found that many adults and young ones joined in.

Many members of the public generously and voluntarily deposited money in our collecting buckets. One shopper said: �We know that when we give money to Rotary it reaches the needy.�

Mirfield Rotary is grateful to the management and staff of Morrisons for their courtesy and cooperation.

 

We wish you a happy Christmas and a blessed New Year.  

Working together to change the world

President Sue Young  recently outlined her plans for the new Rotary year 2016/7.
 
She said: ' During the year we will work together to change the world here in Mirfield and through our international links further afield"™.
 
She affirmed that Rotary can only flourish when there is friendship and fun. When tasks are shared more work gets done!
 
She hoped that we would continue to build on our achievement in becoming a Dementia Friendly club.   
 
In terms of our connection with the community, she referred to our support for the Arts Festival, the Beer festival and the Mirfield Show. Past President Sue Charlesworth has presented a new trophy for Craft work at the show this year.
 
Sue outlined the continuing commitment to help young people by sponsoring candidates for the Youth Leadership programme and also supporting a young person to join the Youth Sail programme.
 
She committed the club to continue to support the Kids Out programme "“ providing a day out at Light Water Valley for young people from Ravensthorpe Special School and their carer.  She hoped too that the club would explore starting a "˜ROTA KIDS"™ Programme in one of the local Primary schools.
 
Sue commended the international work done by members and affirmed our continued commitment to raise funds to eradicate Polio. The Shoebox Appeal which provides so much joy to those who receive these little gifts is also to continue. 
 
The main Charity focus this year is to be Kirkwood Hospice "“ which is personally special to Sue as her brother received end of life care there. 
 
Sue expressed concern about membership and urged all club members to think about how we may adapt Rotary meetings to be more flexible. She also urged us to explore corporate membership.

GILL POOLE, NEXT YEAR'S PRESIDENT OUTLINES HER PLANS

 
Gill says: 'We'll evolve a strategy for growth, raise the profile of the club, enhance fellowship within the club and work towards obtaining Rotary International recognition in the way of Presidential citation'.
