A message from President Edward
It is a great honour for me to be installed as the President of the Rotary Club of Kettering Huxloe for the year 2018-19.
Born in the County, I have been a Rotarian since 2012 and proud to be part of a worldwide organisation founded on the principles of ‘Service Above Self’ and helping others, both within the local community and internationally.
‘Be The Inspiration’ is our challenge for the year set by Rotary International and is a theme that we at the Rotary Club of Kettering Huxloe are aiming to demonstrate through our continuing fundraising, fellowship and community based activities, together with a proud record of service to others in need.
Our programme of community based events includes Dragon Boat Racing, ‘KIDS OUT’ Day at Wicksteed Park, Charity Dinner, Drug Awareness Programme for Schools, Jazz Lunch, Helping Young Carers, support of Cransley Hospice and many more.
Fellowship is an important part of Club life, with a wide range of visits and speakers at our regular Tuesday evening meetings at Kettering Park Hotel.
