A message from our new President Ellie Hambling.


Ellie has lived in the Oulton Broad area for over 45years. She has two daughters and four grandchildren. Ellie has worked within in the Care Industry in Southwold and surrounding villages for over 10years.
Family life, work and her commitment to support local charities keeps her very busy. Ellie joined Rotary 3 years ago and has been a instrumental in bringing us new members and a sense of fun to the club.

Ellie states “ I hope to bring fun and fellowship as well as support to local, national and international charities by raising awareness and funds. Rotary is an important part of my life and since my husband passed away last year, it has helped me to focus on the positive things that can be achieved”.

“I hope to be able to help our club to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. We need new members who can help us to achieve our plans and objectives for the coming year, and who will also bring to the club new ideas, the inspiration and the motivation to go forward.

We have an exciting programme of events and charity fundraisers, as well as our fellowship, friendship and ‘open nights’. I really hope I can encourage new members from our local community to join us. Our charity profile is amazing for such a small club and I am so proud to belong to Southwold and District Rotary and I will continue to promote the ‘service above self’ motto that I strongly believe in “.

I hate to use the C word so early.. but i do need to start collecting for the Rotary Christmas Welcome bags, for our local Womens Refuge. This bag is ready for any woman and child that may have to leave home in a hurry, with nothing but the clothes they stand in. Southwold Rotary collect and donate 24bags to the Refuge. each bag contains the following : a Large T shirt ( to sleep in ) Toothbrush.toothpaste for an adult and a child. Soap. flannel or washing sponge. Shampoo. Hairbrush, Deodorant, Sanitary pads. Diary and a Pen. A box of chocolates, a children's christmas bag of sweets or chocolates. A reading book for an adult and one for a child.A children's activity pack and crayons. A teddy. Some special luxury items.. eg, body spray, nail polish, body creams.
If you would like to donate any of these items please contact me via Sole Bay health Centre or private message me.. if you would like to donate money to help purchase items for these bags, please go to www.southwoldrotary.co.uk and use the 'donate button' . We would prefer to use new things, but as long as they look like new and the T shirts in particular do not have offensive logos or slogans, we would take them.
Thank you very much for your support. Cathy Ryan 🤩

You may all have seen the 'wooden structure' being built last weekend on the Green in front of Sole Bay Health Centre. Well done to the Community Gardening Group.. and Southwold Rotary who helped build the planter box ( I am feeling perhaps it should be renamed the 'balance box'.. judging by how many children i have seen walking around the edge of it, balancing precariously! If it gets filled with manure they might not be so keen...)! Here are the Rotarians and the Community Gardening Team.. Good work everyone..If you are interested in helping please contact Reydon Parish Council for information. Many hands make light work.. and a lovely garden.. ... See MoreSee Less
