Rotary in our District

Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland is divided into ‘Districts’, and ours is called District 1220, including parts of Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Please visit our District website for more information.

Our District Governor  (DG) – or our current governor – is David Hood from the Wirksworth Club.

Every year, we have a District Conference, which features inspirational speakers and visitors from around the globe. Register here to join us in Scarborough on 4th-6th October 2019!

David Hood, DGE for District 1220, 2019-2020

Please watch the video below, which was produced by one of our club members, Alicia Reade to promote the upcoming conference. The song was specially written and performed by Alicia, with contributions from club members across our district! The video also features our Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland President Elect, Donna Wallberg, and District Governors Elect from the whole region, including our own DGE, David Hood. It was David who requested the Scottish feel to the song in order to promote his upcoming conference, being a proud Scot!

 


Our Immediate Past District Governor

Cheryle Berry
DG Cheryle Berry

Our previous District Governor (2018-2019) was the dynamic and inspirational Cheryle Berry M.B.E from the Clay Cross club in Derbyshire.

To add to Cheryle’s impressive list of lifetime achievements, including being a medical Doctor, she has been working recently with Virtual College to bring to us the campaign, ‘Prepared to Save a Life’ – a free online life-saving course. It is a truly innovative way to help each and every one of us be a potential life-saver.

Please visit Virtual College today and register to do this free training, supporting Cheryle’s fantastic innovation and potentially saving the lives of those around you.
