Llangollen Rotary closing after 60 years of service

After 60 years of service to the community the Rotary Club of Llangollen has announced it is to close down next summer.

And the club says it is to disperse its charitable funds to local good causes and organisations.

On its Facebook page the club has posted: "It is with great sadness that we must announce that the Rotary Club of Llangollen will be closing by the end of June 2022 due to a lack of active members to fill critical club officer posts.

"As part of our closure programme we will be holding a funds evening on Monday February 28, 2022 to disperse our charitable funds to local charities, good causes and community organisations.

"If you are a Llangollen charity or community organisation and would like to apply for funds to help with your project or community service delivery then please let the club know by leaving us a message and we will be in touch to explain the process.

"The closing date for initial applications is January 31, 2020 to allow for processing and allocation of a presentation slot on the night."

Comments on social media reflect the degree of sadness about the announcement.

Some of the posts say: "It will be a great loss to the town when you close. How many times have we heard 'We'll ask Rotary to help' You will certainly be missed by The lnner Wheel Club and we thank you for your support and friendship."

"Sad news indeed. Inner Wheel and Rotary have worked together and supported each other over the years. The town will miss them."

"Sad news, lovely people that have done great work in their community for many years. I always enjoyed my visits there."

"Sad to hear this about a hard working Rotary Club."

"A great shame that such a club will be lost to the local community."
