On behalf of all my fellow members of The Rotary Club of Bolsover, welcome to our Club website.

I am delighted to take over the position of President of the Club for the next 12 months, and I want to thank my fellow members for bestowing this honour on me.  I hope they won’t be disappointed.

Of course, I am taking over at a very difficult time for the Club and for our community.   Many people in Bolsover and the surrounding areas are suffering badly as a result of the current situation, and  I am very pleased that we have been able to support  them during the COVID-19 crisis, primarily with donations to local foodbanks.  I’m immensely proud of the things we do together and the standing we have in the community and we will continue to work hard to help those in need.

Those donations have meant that our coffers are empty, and we are currently making plans to raise sufficient money to enable us to give presents to local children from our Santa sleigh at Christmas, as a priority. 

In addition, we are determined to resume our Community Grants scheme when we have funds.

 Watch out for news of our events in and around Bolsover during the year and please support our fundraising as generously as you can.

We are always looking for new members, who have the enthusiasm and community sprit to become good Rotarians. If you want a challenge why not think about how you can contribute to The Rotary Effect?

Contact me by email on president@bolsover-rotary.org if you would like to come to a club night as my guest. I can guarantee you a very warm welcome.

Geoff Woodhead

President 2020/21
