Latest news from Berwick Rotary Club
An 88-year history as a town centre club played a key part to Berwick Rotary's decision to select Upper West Street as its new venue.
It now moves just 500 yards from the former Steak House, which was its home for the last 15 years.
Chris Hardie, vice-president and new club council chairman, presented a report on the work that has gone into the final choice. He said that apart from the Black and Gold and the rugby club, they had also made enquiries with other eating places, which proved to be too small.
As well as being a pleasurable and professional place to share fellowship, the new venue should be one in which they could put their stamp of identity and would help attract new members.
Toni Berlino, head waitress Angela Weightman and staff were thanked for the great effort over the last 15 years.
Berwick Rotary Club was founded in 1928. Since then it has met in The Waterloo Hotel, John Cairn’s Tearooms, King’s Arms Hotel, Tweed View Hotel and Berlino’s.
