Wheels Coming off at the Rotary?

Is a two-part programme about Rotary Clubs in Britain today. It aired this morning on Radio 4. Fascinating stuff. I like the presenter.

But so many things he didn’t say… Also he didn’t seem to get the fact that having an elderly membership in your club is not necessarily a death sentence. With our average life expectancy what it is today – and rising always – clubs like this can often sustain themselves by recruiting people in their 50s and 60s.

Also, not a word about the sense of identity you get within a Rotary Club, the role of regalia, the gap these groups fill in so many lives etc.

Maybe he’ll take that on in part two – airs next Friday.
