I have been a member of Devonport Rotary Club since 2010 when my wife and I immigrated to New Zealand to join our family who live in Devonport. We are both retired and thought it would be difficult to make new friends but how wrong we were! Having decided to join Devonport Rotary we have made many new friends through club business and social occasions, while at the same time making a contribution to the local community. We are both great believers that if you don’t put anything into the community you can’t expect anything back.

I became president of Devonport Rotary for the year 2013/14 and have been involved in a number of fund raising events such as The Fine Homes Tour; Sculpture OnShore, Devonport Food, Wine and Music Festival just to name a few, all of which have helped the Club raise money for good causes both local and internationally.

Devonport Rotary is a forward-thinking charity and I would thoroughly recommend anybody to become part of our club
