COMMUNITY spirited residents are being urged to join a new Rotary club in Northwich, and use their skills to help improve the lives of others.

The new club – the third Rotary branch in Northwich – would meet early in the day to complement the existing lunch and evening groups.

Forward-thinking and innovative members of the community are being sought, to join the flexible, accessible, volunteer-led organisation.

There is a particular emphasis on attracting a broad range of young business and professional people.

Tom Dickerson said: “We are looking for people who can bring with them a range of personal and professional resources and skills that will strengthen the clubs’ ability to successfully help communities at home and overseas.

“Many people want to give something back to their communities but the old format of the clubs made it difficult for some to commit to regular meetings.

"This new club takes a much more flexible approach which will hopefully mean more people can join this fantastic organisation.

"There are many opportunities for everyone, from mentoring youngsters, helping raise funds for good causes, creating family events to helping those in need overseas.

“There are some misconceptions about Rotary but the truth is our members are extremely active people who not only give back to their communities, but have a lot of fun whilst doing it.

"People make new friends, build business contacts, develop their personal skills and try things they would never normally have thought of doing. Rotary really is an organisation that can open doors.”

The club is ultimately looking for at least 20 members from all professions, businesses and areas of the community.

The inaugural meeting of the new club will be held at The Coachman in Chester Road, Hartford – opposite the station – on Wednesday morning, November 6 from 7.30am to 8.30am.
