Rotary at Godalming Town Day

Rotarians from both Godalming Clubs were out in force on Easter Saturday, which was also a Town Day. With a high street full of stalls, Rotary took a prime position outside what was, until recently, the cafe Slug & Lettuce, to erect a ShelterBox tent.

The photo shows President Joy Poulter of the Godalming club with other Rotarians explaining to the visitors why Shelterboxes, which contain a tent for 10 people as well as essential survival equipment, are so important all around the world in places where there have been natural disasters.


On this day, Rotarians were collecting to replace the Shelterboxes that have just been sent to Vanuatu, following the mid-March devastating cyclone Pam, which is estimated to have left 3,300 people homeless and to have flattened more than 90% of the buildings in the capital. Thanks to the generous people in Godalming we collected £456 towards the cost of another box. Rotarians in Britain and Ireland have jointly donated £220,000 to Shelterbox in response to the disaster in Vanuatu.

Further along the high street, Godalming Rotarians were manning a tombola stall to provide some amusement for the town’s visitors and to generate some funds for the Charities supported by Rotary this year.

Pictured right is Rotarian Jane Stedman helping to persuade people to buy tickets.

Rotarians also assisted the town council with the setting up and marshalling of the town day - another example of working together with local organisations to improve the lives of local people.

Godalming Woolsack Inducts its 40th Member

David Allen, on the right in the picture with club President Mike Poulter, became a member of the Woolsack club recently and took our total to 40 members.

David has been a local man all his life and with a keen interest in sports, he has been involved with and an officer of a number of local sports clubs. He has been a funeral director for more than 30 years until his recent retirement.

David likes to get involved and we are delighted that he has chosen to join our club and the wider family of Rotary.


At a time when some Rotary clubs and many other service clubs are struggling to maintain their membership, Woolsack has grown from just 26 members in 2004 to our present total of 40. If you would like to know why, please come and visit us on any Monday evening.
