RYE and Winchelsea Rotary Club unveiled its future plans when it received a recent visit from Assistant Governor Don Soppitt.

They include ambitious plans to support international disaster relief as well as engagement with and help for local charities and youth groups.

Derick Holman, of Rye Rotary, said: “The year ahead looks full of challenges.

“Bernard Ries, Rye’s membership chairman revealed his strategy for enlargement of club membership during the coming period. Taking a more low key approach than some of his predecessors, Bernard is looking to attract club member applications rather than using outright recruitment methods.

“Don Soppitt congratulated the club on its achievements and also wished the clubs incoming president Robert Holland every success in the coming twelve months.

“It seems that Rye and Winchelsea is an ideas tank, where we do things slightly unconventionally but always manage to punch above our weight and get results. But just as importantly we do it in style and have lots of fun in the process.”
