After 75 weeks of online meetings, members of Lochaber Rotary returned to their regular weekly lunch at the Alexandra Hotel last week where they were welcomed by deputy manager, Val McIver, who is also an honorary member of the club.

President Simon Hardiman hosted the meeting and members discussed a range of issues and made initial arrangements for the Christmas Craft and Food Producers’ Festival and Reindeer Parade scheduled for November 27.

President Simon said: ‘It’s good to see plans coming together – we will be going ahead unless Covid stops us again.’

The work of Rotary has continued over the various shutdowns and Lochaber gave £500 to the overseas work of polio eradication, which has been Rotary International’s prime humanitarian project since 1985.

At the present time, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation match donations and while polio continues in some parts of the world the vaccination infrastructure that Rotary helped build has also been used to distribute Covid vaccine.
