 A Message from the Club President

Thank you for visiting our website.  I hope you enjoy reading about our Club.  We are a small, friendly Club of men and woman who live and\or work in the Sandwell area.  Using the menu on the left, you can find out more about what we do, including up-to-date information about our weekly meetings.  We are a part of Rotary International, which is the world's largest service organisation for business and professional people.  If you are a Rotarian visiting the area, you will be made welcome at one of our meetings - check the programme page for further details.  If you're interested in joining West Bromwich Rotary Club, please make contact and we will arrange for you to visit.  There are several clubs within the Sandwell area.   Each club tends to support projects within their own local area, so even if you live in a different area, please contact us and we can guide you towards one of them.  I hope to see you soon.

Visit by a Rotarian from New Zealand

Hilary Veasey-Pugh with John Fullard of New Zealand

The Club welcomed Rotarian John Fullard from New Zealand who was visiting the U.K.  A native of West Bromwich, John was in the country to celebrate his father's birthday. This was his second visit to the Club - the first being around 5 years ago.  Members took the opportunity to compare and contrast how our respective Clubs operated. John's Club, the Rotary Club of Botany East Tamaki (Inc) which meets in Botany on North Island.  It was interesting to hear how similar were the issues facing our Clubs.  John sent the greetings of President David Houghton.
