The Hasbury and Cradley Rotary Club has changed its name to the Clent Hills Rotary Club.

The club was formed in 1979 but the members decided a new name and changed image was the way forward, which, with its broader regional reach, is intended to generate membership from those interested and based in this wider area.

President Peter Goodgame said: “We want to introduce some new blood and fresh ideas to our great club.

"We can promise a genuinely warm welcome and lots of fun and friendship, whilst continuing to help the local community and raise funds to support the all-important charities in our area, as well as some of those sponsored by Rotary internationally."

During its 36 year history, the club has been responsible for raising in excess of £250,000, through its direct efforts or the many events which it has organised.

Local charities which have benefitted include Mary Stevens Hospice, Sunfield Homes, Action Heart, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Young Carers.

Secretary Chris Todd added: ”We are all very proud of our fund-raising record, but as a member for all of those 36 years, above all else.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed all of that time in this club and made some truly great friends. I would strongly encourage anyone interested to contact us and try out a couple of meetings, all without any commitment."

 

Clent Hills Rotary Club meets on Thursday evenings at The French Hen, Clent,
