Happy International Women's Day !

Until 1989, the Constitution and Bylaws of Rotary International stated that Rotary club membership was for males only. Times have moved and laws have changed. We are proud that our club is one of the first clubs to accept female members and privileged to be chairing for our 77 year old club.

                           British Community Honours Award at House of Lords, 19 October 2018.

Peter's family at BCHAimage1 (1)  

CK-CB with Peter at BCHAPeter & Foon at BCHA  

Congratulations to Dr. Peter Wong-Morrow who was given recognition for making an outstanding contribution to the welfare and integration of minority communities into mainstream British society. He was presented the prestigious British Community Honours Award at a ceremony at the House of Lords on 19 October 2018, joined by his family and friends.

Peter is a role model who works closely with the Chinese-British community, promoting integration and social cohesion through business and charity work.  Since arriving in the UK from China at an early age of 9, Dr Wong-Morrow integrated well through sports. Despite his small stature, he was in the football team, Art and Chess Club, broke the Hertfordshire County High Jump record and learned to play rugby until he became Captain of the School rugby team.

Peter and his family support several charities including the NSPCC. Through his membership of the Rotary Club of Elstree and Borehamwood for 17 years, he helps raise funds for Rotary’s chosen charities. A remarkable man, Peter gives up his time to help cancer patients with counselling and advice.

Year after year for the last 40 years, the Rotary Club of Elstree & BorehamWood has been presenting School Awards to local primary school children who have demonstrated “Service Above Self” and that they have served their school well, helped others, willingly and regularly contributed to the life of the school. 

This week, we spent time attending School Assemblies to present awards in front of delighted parents. 

We share some of the testimonials from teachers.

Rotary Club of Elstree & Borehamwood brought greetings to Rotary Club of Westminster West on 18 July 2018. Newly elected President Juvenal J M Shiundu gave a warm welcome to guests while Past DG 1120 Dr. Himansu Basu presented Nayan Patel the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow.

Dr Basu passionately talked about their ‘Stop Mothers Dying’ initiative called ‘Collaborative Action in Lowering of Maternity Encountered Deaths’ (Calmed). It is alarming that according to them, “800 mothers and 5000 babies die at childbirth everyday – most are preventable!”

Supported by Rotary Foundation, “Calmed” brings hope to individuals and organisations working towards reduction of preventable maternal deaths and lowering of associated morbidities and new born deaths.

Congratulations again to Nayan and to Juvenal !

Three weeks in a row to date where Rotarians led by Andrew Grady, Norman Shuker & local residents of Elstree & BorehamWood got together to enjoy Brass Band concerts. This time, Hemel Hempstead Brass Band performed playing old time favourites like Out of Africa, Thunderbird, Life on Mars and the National Anthem for a finale.

Here they are again, doing what they do best - Service Above Self, rolling up their sleeves to set up and dismantle the gazebos to be stored for the next weekend show.
