ROTARIANS VOLUNTEER FOR EMERGENCY DUTIES IN THE NORTH OF OUR DISTRICT
GOOD NEWS- Rotary Volunteer  support  for local emergencies.

Bromley  Rotary Emergency Support Team is now almost in place  and Clubs are just  finalising  details and hopefully Rotarians preparing their  Grab Bags !! Good to be prepared but let's hope we are not needed.

I have visited  the Bexley lead for Emergency Planning  and they are going to mirror the Bromley Rotary Volunteer Programme, giving it their own personal touch.  This week I have asked Bexley Rotary Clubs to identify a co-ordinator and volunteers.

It is expected that Rotarians and partners will be asked to help in local Rest Centres.

KENT COUCIL is expecting to launch its volunteer training in the New Year.

ORPINGTON CROFTON CLUB - with partners enjoyed a really interesting talk about Life  in the MET.  Kim  Botting,  a past Mayor of Bromley,  told us how  difficult it was to be accepted  as a woman  into a police team  in the 70's and how t…

OUT AND ABOUT IN ROTARY SOUTHEAST AND  GIBRALTAR
Hi there  everyone. Well the last few weeks have been busy and interesting. I have been promising a blog, so I do hope that you will read it. I am not an expert Blogger so please excuse the gaffs. I am sure you will point them out and I'll try to be a quick learner. Having been on intensive training to be a DG, which was held in Rainy Riga with all the other DGNs of my year, I thought I had better do as was promised and start my blog. The Latvia rain I soon found out was training for my Sleep-out.

SLEEP OUT- IN NOVEMBER It was wet!!!!!
I am  trying to look comfortable and keen to spend the night out in a Bromley Graveyard in aid of The Bromley Shelter for the Homeless. A big thank you to all who sponsored my efforts. thanks to AG Mike Martineau who helped me struggle into my Bivvy Bag  (and then go home It had started to rain!!)  and thanks to President Keith Heard Orpington Crofton  for being one of the breakfast cookers. Very welc…
