This year the Christmas Swim moves online. During the month of December, we would like you to register in the usual way and then send us a photo of you doing your “swim” in a fun and imaginative way. It can be in the sea, paddling pool, the bath, as long as it involves at least partial immersion in water. There will be a small prize and medal for the most money raised and for the most imaginative swim. All proceeds will go to The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Welcome to our website

I am delighted to have been elected President after only 5 years with the club. I am truly a ‘local girl’ having been born and bred in the village of Wrentham, just 4 miles from Southwold. I have recently retired after 40+ years as a carer, so the time is right for a new adventure. This year will carry on being a challenge while we work out how we will deliver our future plans and objectives as well as continue with the fellowship we all enjoy.

I will be looking to club members for innovative ideas to continue with our high profile of fundraising and project work as well as maintaining our links and ongoing support to our local, national and international commitments.

My Husband John (also a Rotarian) and I will be hoping to plan some additional fundraising in aid of The Teenage Cancer Trust. We have many grandchildren and great grandchildren, so doing something for this younger age group seems appropriate. This may be a challenge in these exceptional circumstances, but I am confident our club will rise to the occasion.

I look forward to meeting you all at our Thursday meetings when the resume or at one of our events, whether it be ‘online’ or in person.

Thank you

Gillian Warren

President 2020/2021
