Toasting Guernsey Rotary Club

We were delighted to receive a message from Simon Wood at the Rotary Club of Guernsey:

Greetings from the Rotary Club of Guernsey. At the regular meetings of The Rotary Club of Guernsey in the British Isles we toast the members of a Rotary club in another part of the world. The toast reminds us of the international nature of Rotary and that clubs like yours and ours are active and doing good work on every continent. At a regular meeting held recently, we had the pleasure of toasting your club, The Rotary Club of Pershore, and displayed your banner at the same time. The display of your banner can be seen on our Rotary Club website – look for Rotary Club of Guernsey and follow the link ‘What We Do’ at the top of the page and then select ‘Toasting Rotary Clubs’. You can use the small arrows to the left or right of the picture to find the banner of your club. From all of us here, to all of you there, from beautiful Guernsey, a Rotarian Cheer!”

As incoming president for 2024/25 I had the pleasure of reading out the message to our regular meeting at The Queen Elizabeth, Elmley Castle, on 19th June.

The club members, as I anticipated, wanted to return the compliment to our colleagues in Guernsey, and we raised our glasses to you "Cheers to The Rotary Club of Guernsey"!

With us on Wednesday also were Lynne Newell (Assistant District 1100 Governor), Lucy Thornton (District 1100 Governor Nominee 2025/26), and Past District 1100 Governor Ken Corrigan.

I checked out Guernsey's web pages and, as described, found the page with the Pershore Banner and we wondered which Pershore Rotarian had visited the Guernsey Club and when they presented The Rotary Club of Guernsey with the banner.

My personal best wishes also to your incoming president Simon Howitt.

Pershore Rotary Club meet regularly at the Queen Elizabeth, Elmley Castle as part of our programme of meetings and events - check out our Events Page.
