CLUB SERVICE REPORT:  March 23rd 2010

Chairman John Burroughs gave a brief report stating that all aspects of the Club under the jurisdiction of his committee were running smoothly. Since the last Club Council meeting the Presidents Ladies Night Dinner and Dance date had to be changed to the 10th April, due to a clash with the Civic Ball on 17th April.

Arrangements for another trip to Southwold Theatre is currently being dealt with by Bert Collins.

Bookings for the ‘Haven Weekender’ at Chilworth Manor Hotel in Hampshire over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend (30th April to 3rd May) are virtually complete and now stand at 30.

CLUB SERVICE REPORT:  April 28th 2008

Club Service Chairman Robert Parker reported that the Tri-Club initiative of purchasing and filling 45 Aqua Boxes was still on hold because of the transport difficulties outlined at Club Council in March. Also the Tri-Club Dinner is on hold until a convenient date can be agreed.

 He stated that the Club Tombola was going okay but there was some concern regarding the condition of the stand and also the ‘giant teddy’ which is put on display. Co-ordinator John Burroughs would be made aware of these concerns.

 Robert then handed out the latest Social Calendar details .

CLUB SERVICE REPORT:  28th January 2008

Club Service Chairman Robert Parker made known the planned Social Events up to June 2009 and clarified some actual dates. It was noticed that the Tri-Club Dinner Dance and our own Casino Evening clashed on the same date of October 3rd and it was agreed by Council that we should concentrate on our event only.

The Secretary asked Robert if he would inform the Tri-Club Committee of this decision.

 Tony King has spoken with Mike Butcher about speaking to the Tri-Club lunch assembly on 18th February about his hopes and plans for his forthcoming visit to Australia with the Group Study Exchange Team. Mike was happy to oblige us with this.

 Tony also advised Council that after careful consideration of a number of potential candidates, the new Junior Vice President will be John Burroughs. Council endorsed this decision. At the Business Meeting of 28th January Robert Parker asked the Club to approve this decision by a show of hands.   John Burroughs was accepted unanimously.

30th November 2005

A group of members and their guests went to the Thursford Christmas Extravaganza show. After coach pick-ups at Caister and Acle , the group arrived at Fakenham and had a nice meal and drink in one of the hotels before proceeding to Thursford.

The show was fantastic entertainment full of music and variety.

The audience.

17th November 2005

Club Service Committee Meeting

Monday Lunchtime Programme of Speakers Etc.  -    It was reported that the programme was arranged fully until Christmas.  In the New Year it is hoped to arrange the debate on the Paul Harris Foundation Awards.  It is hoped to be on Monday 12th January 2006. The evening meeting on 6th February will feature Dr. Kingsley Branch as the speaker. The meeting will be open for male guests.  All members should know when they have to provide a speaker until the end of the Rotary year.

 

Social Events -  Arrangements for all the social events up to Christmas have been finalised.   Thursford Christmas Extravaganza evening visit is Wednesday 30th November.  Gorleston Pavilion show is booked although not too many members are going, but those attending will get 2 glasses of champagne, some nibbles and the show for only £16.  The three Great Yarmouth Rotary clubs are presenting " An evening of Christmas Music and Carols " at Christchurch, Deneside on Wednesday 14th December.  The choir of Roman Hill Middle School Lowestoft will be featured. Admission FREE ! Any voluntary donations can be made on departure in aid of local charity " BREAK " ( offering holiday respite for very ill people ).   The Ladies Christmas Dinner on Monday 19th December will have entertainment provided by the Dusmagrik Theatre Group. There will be a raffle with a limited number of very good prizes on offer.   The Club Council will be asked to recommend the invitation to Joan Stanley, Valerie Jordan and Barbara Bluck as guests of the Club at this event.   The Presidents Ladies Night Dinner and Dance will be held on Friday 7th April 2006. Arrangements for the venue and other details  at a later date.

 

Sport -  Nothing to report

 

Membership and Attendance  - Official membership still stands at 47 plus 2 honorary members but with John Hovell, T.C.Harry and Tim Watson on leave of absence for the remainder of the Rotary year and David Bluck and Geoffrey Denton with illness plus a number of members spending some time in holiday homes abroad, the average weekly attendance is between 30 and 33.  It is thought that efforts should now be made to encourage new members to join, who it is felt can be of use to the Club , but not just for numbers sake.

 

Finance  - The Committee has no concerns over the finances of the Club ,and the income and operation of the Potters " Teddy bears " was discussed and the outcome so far this year is that income was up slightly but expenses were down , so the end result was satisfactory.  However members have shown their concern at the number of "sorry" tickets coming up and that the public still liked to look for winning numbers. Although there are adequate stocks of the old tickets , it was felt that the numbered tickets as in the past should be re-introduced.

 

Welfare -  Tony Wortley has been actively involved in keeping up to date on the situation with regard to David Bluck's illness and members have been informed on a regular basis.

 

Public Relations and Website -  John Westgate is still regularly supplying the Yarmouth Mercury with the Club notes and Club News for the inclusion on our website. He has indicated this is the last year that he will be doing the job. However, from next July, Robert Lovick will take over.   The Club website has been designed by T.C.Harry over the last few years but due to his commitment in his demanding work, he is no longer able to devote sufficient time to the site. Alan Spinks will be updating and keeping the website "fresh" and active but has asked all club members and Committee chairman ,to supply the information necessary to run the site efficiently.

 

Links with other Local Rotary Clubs -  All three Clubs will be involved in a Publicity event on Great Yarmouth Market Place on Saturday 10th December, informing the public of the work of Rotary. Each club will supply three members to man the stand through the day.  The committee was reminded of the joint programme for the three clubs of " An Evening of Christmas Music and Carols" on Wednesday 14th December.

 

Chairman Bert Collins thanked Graham Plant for the use of his premises and the supply of refreshments.
