Message from our President

From the Desk of President Margaret          
Diversity, equity and inclusion are high on the Rotary agenda. According to R. I. President Jennifer Jones, diversity, equity and inclusion is important not only to Rotary but also for our world.
This includes diversity of thought, diversity of age, diversity of culture, diversity of gender and diversity of vocation.  Each of us should be mindful of what we say, think or do in the area of diversity and the impact that this will have on our club and the people and community we interact with.
Rotary is a non-political, non-religious, and an organisation that is enjoys membership in many countries in the world. This puts us in a unique position to participate in dialogue that respects each other’s views. How we communicate will reflect on Rotary and on our club and is an avenue for us to attract new and diverse membership while promoting the Rotary motto of Service Above Self. Let us all commit to playing our part in promoting diversity while attracting new members.
Thanks everyone
With every best wishes
President Margaret Mason

Club Meeting at Marriott Services July 6 2022
Today’s meeting was held in the kitchen and canteen at Marriott Support Services in Keys Road, Cheltenham and was a wonderful opportunity to re-engage with an organisation that had a very close and enduring connection with a former club member, Alan Marriott.   Today was the first club meeting to herald in the new Rotary year and President Margaret’s first meeting as a returning president.  Linda and Faye collaborated to provide a lovely continental breakfast of fresh fruit, croissants, toast and Danish pastries, washed down with orange juice, coffee and tea.  Ian setup the Zoom meeting enabling non visiting club members to join in.  Charles R joined the meeting via Zoom.

Market report: Day started off very cold and fog drifted in and was quite thick - as local fogs go from around 7.00am. Had two or three casuals turn up without booking looking for vacant stalls. One had checked online and saw that there were vacancies but didn’t bother booking and then turned up demanding two stalls. Threats of going to another market fell on deaf ears. The sun finally came out at 11.50am.
