2021

Derek Cheetham, one of our long standing members, sadly passed away at 6am on Sunday morning, 5th September, with his wife June and their two daughters Rachel and Sarah by his side. Rest in Peace Derek.

The Vicar of Rotherham Minster and his wife attended one of our Thursday night Zoom meetings earlier in 2021 and spoke to us about their work, including the “Social Supermarket”(SSM). Our newest member Martin Davis was particularly interested in the project and below, in his own words, is how he followed it up.

At our meeting on the 29th July at Sitwell Golf Club, this year's President Steve Burns was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship by Immediate Past President Trish Lister. The award is presented for exceptional "Service Above Self" and Steve was a worthy recipient for his tireless work in collecting for Rotherham food banks during the pandemic and his support of other local charities.

Following the successful bid to the South Yorkshire Community Fund it was decided to hold an afternoon tea at the George Wright Boutique Hotel to celebrate the work of the six organisations who shared the £5000 Grant.

At the Handover Meeting on 1st July, Steve Burns was installed as our new President for 2021/22. Steve has heroically stepped up as President after only two years as a Rotarian, but brings with him a wealth of experience in leadership from other organisations in the social, professional and charitable sectors. We wish him all the very best for the year.

The Terry English Trophy is awarded by the President for exceptional service during the Rotary year. Tom Knight was the winner in 2019 and Roger Green in 2020.
