Virtual Meetings

Since losing our ability to meet in person at any Restaurant or public meeting space we chose not to suspend the club meetings entirely but to use the technology that other parts of Rotary have tried and proven for many years.

For this our chosen technology enables us to meet each week and share fellowship, our concerns for each other’s safety and render whatever assistance we can to members locked down in the same way.

We will recommence meetings in person (mask to mask) on 2nd June 2020

at the Asia Restaurant as usual

Our virtual meetings continue to be held on the Tuesday at 1600 have now been visited by 30 of our members and around 20 weekly. These meetings give us excellent opportunities to do almost anything but eat together. So bringing your own wine or whatever enables us to toast our fellowship and good fortune. The average age of a Rotarian may well not be considered young but we truly believe that our technological approach adopted early puts us among those creating the next century of Rotarians and keeps us in touch with members across Europe who are also locked down. Both meetings will continue after reopening and to an extent to be advised, through the summer period.

Please note that these meetings are encrypted so cannot be evedropped by anyone and are password protected. The meeting software is the world’s brand leader and has technological edge over most other providers like Cisco and Microsoft who are newcomers to this technology invented by Cornell University and Pioneered by White Pines Software as far back as the 80s.
