Be the Inspiration in 2018-2019

District Governor Ashley Gray joins us at this evenings meeting to share Rotary International President Barry Rassin’s theme for the new 2018-19 year - Be the Inspiration.

President Barry is encouraging Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other and to be the inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — taking a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and taking action to help solve them.

Wolverhampton Young Photographer Competition

We're remembering one of the best this weekend.

Club member and committed Rotarian David Cave sadly passed away last year. David was a two time recipient of the Rotary Paul Harris Fellowship - most recently in 2013 for his service to the community through Rotary and especially his work with the Wolverhampton Youth Orchestras.

David was a talented industrial and commercial photographer and his photographs recording life in the West Midlands frequently featured in the Express & Star, and other city and national publications.

We've joined with the Wolverhampton Photographic Society to honour Davids memory with award of a prize and trophy for the annual Wolverhampton Young Photographer competition. The winner will be announced on Monday but you can see this years entries on the theme of 'Urban Landscape' this Saturday between 11am and 2pm at The Viner Gallery, Merridale Lane WV3 9RB - near the junction of Merridale Road next to the school fields.
