Ro­tary Club: TheMaesteg club has been run­ning for over 70 years and meet ev­ery fort­night on a Mon­day at 1pm in the Cross Inn Maesteg/ Cwm­fe­lin.

At last week’s meet­ing at the Cross Inn out­go­ing Pres­i­dent Tal­fyn Har­ries handed over the chain of of­fice to RobertDavies for the year 2018/19.

Robert’s main pri­or­ity for his year is to try and in­crease mem­ber­ship of the club which at present has nine mem­bers with only six ac­tive so it is get­ting harder to keep the club go­ing which at the end of the day will mean less as­sis­tance for those who need it in the val­ley.

He in­tends to main­tain the ac­tiv­i­ties al­ready be­ing done at the club, such as or­gan­is­ing the an­nual fire­works dis­play, send­ing stu­dents to the Ro­tary Youth Lead­er­ship course on the Bre­con Bea­cons and send­ing pri­mary school chil­dren out for a day at Gower Her­itage cen­tre.

To this end the Ro­tary club have or­gan­ised a bucket col­lec­tion for Fri­day, July 27 at Tesco Maesteg.

All money raised will be used for lo­cal char­i­ties.

Any­body who is in­ter­ested in join­ing the club and ul­ti­mately help­ing lo­cal char­i­ties please con­tact Tal Har­ries on 07999 886 142.

If any­one, male or fe­male, who is able to spare an hour each fort­night and would like to help in the ben­e­fit of oth­ers please con­tact Har­ries 01656 711 078 or 079 998 861.
