We would like to welcome our new members to the eClub, these are:
Please could you update your profiles and upload a photograph, you might like to write something about yourselves to introduce yourself to each other.
Over the coming weeks it is hoped we can encourage others to join this exciting initiative as we move towards getting 25 members to be officially chartered as a Rotary cClub.
To help you promote the eClub to others I hope to post more information in the form of an induction programme as to how things might work, however this is new territory for Rotary and I believe it will be important for us to have flexibility in how things work.
From September we will ensure that a weekly programme starts to operate, so that new members joining will be able to get involved with our meetings and any projects we start to work on. If anyone is interested in undertaking a role within the eClub we need a Secretary, Treasurer, Webmaster and various Forum Chairs (see information on Club Structure).
Please post any questions you may have about the eClub or Rotary, these will help others to start to engage using our meeting place.

My name is Tim Mason, I’ve been a Rotarian since I was 27 years, over 30 years ago, I joined after crashing my car on holiday, the garage owner and solicitor invited me to join the Rotary Club of Aylsham, Norfolk. I’ve done all sorts of things during my time in Rotary, including dressing up as Andy Pandy and playing Cricket on New Years Day, to setting off Community Fireworks on Lancing Beach to raise funds, being Father Christmas on the Sledge that goes around to bring joy to housing estates. In the Forest of Dean Rotary Club I became the President for the year and recently in Swindon I have carried out the duties as Secretary.
I love Social Networking and through facebook have made loads of Rotary Family friends, which has included many trips to Degerfors in Sweden to learn more about their culture and ways of doing things. This year 2011 we attended the Rotary International Convention in New Orleans, a fantastic experience. I came back determined to do my best to get an eClub off the ground in District 1100. After the convention we went onto meet Rotary/facebook friends in LA, there they had arranged for me to visit Disneyland and meet Mickey Mouse, a lifetime ambition since I was 14.
Rotary will offer you many different experiences, from helping in your local community, to making huge differences where disasters have struck in far off parts of the world, to learning how business is performed in say India, to maybe just having fun in a quiz evening with fellow members. I love being one individual doing my bit in a team of 1.2 million members.
