The first Club meeting of 2021 had an international flavour when our European contact clubs joined us for an on-line get together. It was lovely to see familiar faces on screen and it was interesting to find out how other clubs are adapting to cope with these challenging times.
Faversham Rotary has four contact clubs – Harderwijk in the Netherlands, Bogense in Denmark, Vadstena in Sweden and Soest-Lippstadt in Germany.
We keep in touch with each other regularly, sometimes collaborating on projects but mainly we meet up at least once a year for a weekend of fun and fellowship. We take it in turn to host visits, sometimes just a couple of clubs getting together, sometimes all five clubs meeting up for a long weekend.
Last year’s visit had to be cancelled and at the moment this year’s is also in doubt, but we’ll be catching up with each other in person as soon as we can.
In the meantime there’s always another zoom…….!
