Robert Lovick, incoming governor of the Rotary Club's District 1080, says the main aim of his year in office is to attrract new members.

District 1080 covers 72 Rotary clubs across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. Ray Burman, its membership chairman, attended a meeting of the King's Lynn club to explain Mr Lovick's proposals and the new policies that have been created, with a greater emphasis on keeping the public aware of the work and the aims of Rotary, both on a local and a global basis. The Rotary Club of King's Lynn will shortly announce a series of events, designed to inform and encourage members of the public to consider becoming Rotarians.

The carpet-slipper, pipe-smoking mildly intoxicated old man image, frequently portrayed in the media, does not describe a typical rotarian. Young, active and successful men and women are joining Rotary to help the less fortunate at home and abroad.
