Rotary LogoRotary Club of New Mills, Marple and District

The Rotary Club of New Mills, Marple and District meets every Thursday lunchtime in Marple Golf Club at 12.30 pm.

Visiting Rotarians are always welcome.

Our President for 2022-2023 is Mike Yates

Our new President for 2022-2023, Mike Yates (below left), was inducted at a recent meeting. He has been a member of New Mills Marple and District Rotary for 30 years. His main involvement over the last 15 years, has been with the project working towards eliminating Polio in the world and he has visited India on 20 occasions, taking groups of volunteers to immunise children. There is now only a handful of cases in Pakistan and Afghanistan but until it is completely gone, there is always a risk of the return of this dreadful paralysing disease.

Rotary is a group of men and women, enjoying meeting together but always with the aim of giving something back to society both locally and internationally. If you want to know a bit more about what we do, look at our website or join us at one of our meetings.

Our Secretary for this year is Chris Farnsworth

Chris (above right) is a retired Dentist who practised in Marple for 30 years in the days when Dentistry was subsided by the Government and relatively cheap. A rocking horse was installed in the waiting room which was more popular with children than the Dentist! He is a dedicated Manchester City supporter fan who regrets the demise of United, and hopes they will soon be back in strength. He is a great supporter of Rotary Charities.
