On 26th January we welcomed Phil Godfrey from Solihull Rotary who is an ambassador for APS UK (Antiphospholipid Syndrome). Phil talked to us about his personal connection with the condition, his walk from Isles of Scilly to the Shetland Isles and his rail tour around Britain. He has visited many Rotary clubs raising awareness of APS.

On 24th October we marked World Polio Day by displaying purple ribbons and bows and posters in the centre of West Malling.
Over thirty five businesses agreed to support this by allowing us to use their premises. We also put collection tins in some shops. In the end we had a most striking display which apart from cheering up the streets on a rainy day helped raise awareness of Rotary and its role in the polio eradication campaign.
Anne, Zamir, Mandy and Karen, a friend of Rotary spent a couple of hours litter picking in West Malling as part of the national campaign.
Great fun and worthwhile too.
Some Club members and their partners met up in David and Maureen’s garden for a socially distanced coffee morning. This was organised at short notice to take advantage of the good weather and was an excellent opportunity to come together informally as friends and enjoy each other’s company.
