The Rotary Club of Billericay Mayflower meets at 8pm on a Thursday evening at the Bustead Golf Club, Little Burstead, including 5th Thursdays, for fellowship and a good meal. The club numbers forty eight people, and this group runs several events in the town, most notable of which are the Summerfest Event in July and the Billericay Christmas Market at the beginning of December.
Our President this year is Yvonne Kyndt, who took over in July 2019. Please e-mail Ian Miller, the Club Secretary, for more information about the club. His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club has an interesting history, and is closely associated with the Rotary Club of Billericay which meets on a Monday.
From the President
As I take over from President Carl Johnson, I would like to thank him for the hard work and dedication shown to Mayflower Rotary, particularly over this last year. Carl is going on to be an Assistant Governor, where I’m sure his brand of optimism and innovation will serve the District very well. As for myself, I am so proud to be President in Mayflower Rotary’s 30th year, and its first woman President.
Although I have been a Rotarian for only five years, in that time I have come to appreciate the amazing group of people that are Mayflower Rotary, and I never fail to be astonished at just how much money we raise for local and international charities – whilst having such a great time too (see our Facebook page www.facebook.com/billericaymayflower for proof!!).
My vision for the next year is quite modest: I would like the Club to continue to support Rotary’s own “End Polio Now” campaign: we are so close to eradicating this devastating disease; I would like to produce a comprehensive “Guide to Billericay Mayflower Rotary”; and finally, I would like to promote the concept of “Rotary in Billericay”. The town now has three Rotary clubs and although we often support each other, I believe we could do more: together we’re stronger!
If the idea of being part of a dynamic group of people who work together for the good of the community of Billericay and beyond attracts you, please do get in touch. You’re guaranteed a warm welcome.
President, Rotary Club of Billericay Mayflower.
