WVRC are forming a "Satellite" Rotary Club. That is, a new Rotary club based in Syston to cover north Leicester. It's informal, aimed at younger people and open to men and women. The right attitude is more important than your job description. See what Rotary does locally by clicking on the tabs onthe left. Please come along to our second Information Meeting on Monday 30th of November, without commitment, to find out more. Full details are on the poster above. We look forward to seeing you then! You can find Syston Rotary Satellite Club on Facebook.
