Latest news from Berwick Rotary Club
Rotarians are being urged to buy and plant trees, and if a new scheme succeeds, 1.2 million could be used.
Details were given by district governor Len Burns when he paid his annual visit to the club in the Castle Hotel recently.
He said Berwick was a flourishing club and stressed that its theme for the year was Rotary: Making a Difference.
He added that the Rotary organisation was not good at public relations and it should be telling people about the work it is doing nationally and worldwide.
He felt Rotary should be looking at itself and doing what it could to increase membership.
There was no doubt that some clubs were struggling.
Some satellite clubs were being set up, meeting at different times to suit the members. The meetings had less formality and it was an interesting development.
