Welcome to the Rotary Club of Jedburgh, from President Ian Sanford and all the members.
As President of the Rotary Club of Jedburgh for the 2017-2018 year, one of my aims is to raise the profile of the club in Jedburgh and beyond.
As a club I think we should enhance the quality of life in Jedburgh by supporting causes and charitable work which will benefit the town and those less fortunate than ourselves. We should be pro-active on the international stage by continuing to be a major donor to the ‘End Polio Now’ campaign and other international projects such as, ‘Vision Aid’ and ‘Lend with Care.’ We should also be ready to respond to national and international emergencies when appropriate.
The Club is anchored in the town of Jedburgh and will seek to assist individuals and organisations in the area, working with others to be a substantial contributor to local initiatives. These include, the ‘Winter Festival’, ‘Birl n’ Beer’ and similar events. We will seek to work closely with schools, young persons’ organisations, businesses and those whose purpose is to help make the town of Jedburgh a vibrant and attractive place to live.
To strengthen the club, I would like to see an increase in membership, particularly younger members. I would like to widen the membership by improving the gender balance through the recruitment of more lady members. It is important that, as a club, we embrace equality and diversity.
I hope the club can use the year of my Presidency to achieve these aims and become a more successful and pro-active organisation. I extend my best wishes and hopes for 2017-18 to all our members and supporters.
Handover to President Ian July 2017

Junior Fly Fishing at the Hass Loch
On Saturday 21st September Jedburgh Rotary Club held another of their highly successful Junior Fly Fishing days, thanks to the generosity of Jedforest Angling Association. The day was held at the Hass Loch near Carter Bar and nearly a dozen youngsters aged between 6 and 16 took part. Some of the anglers were experienced, but most of them were trying fly-fishing for the first time. Full article
