Regretfully I would like to inform you that The Rotary Club of Southampton East has decided to close.

The decision was taken with great regret, but as we seemed unable to recruit new members; and our current members are now all in the "mature age" range; the decision was taken by a majority of members votes.

The club wishes to thank the people of Southampton East for their support over some 70 years of giving to our causes, whether these were local or worldwide needs.

We shall miss you, especially at Christmas, when your generous donations did so much good for local charities and needs.

We have closed but please continue to give generously to Rotary whenever and wherever you see us in the area.

Thank you very much from all our members

John Lawrence

Acting Secretary

Rotary Club of Southampton East
