About us

Welcome to Hereford City Rotary Club

 President for 2017/2018 -

Ray Bayliss

IT'S all change at City of Hereford Rotary Club where outgoing president Heather Gorringe has passed the baton to her successor Ray Bayliss.

The hand-over took place at the grand finale of Heather's presidential service where she reviewed what had been a memorable year.

The club had enjoyed another very successful 12 months, including a club visit to Cambodia, a concert by the Caerphilly Male Voice Choir, an 'Antique or Junk' roadshow and a hugely well-supported duck race, all of which had seen more than £30,000 handed over in contributions to deserving causes.

Heather said that she had visited a number of other clubs and this had highlighted how successful a club the City of Hereford is.

Membership had increased during the year and she put this down to the warm welcome that prospective new members received and a shared sense of fun and friendship.

Heather paid tribute to all the help that she had received from her committee heads and named the retiring treasurer, John Tallis, as her Rotarian of the Year.

She also handed over certificates to past presidents Derek Duffett and Richard Hammond who have been named as Paul Harris Fellows in view of their contribution to Rotary.

Heather also presented a diary to Ray Bayliss, who said that he was looking forward immensely to his presidential year and honoured to have been chosen.
