SUTTON Rotary Club is appealing for new members to help carry on the tradition of charity work and social events in the town.

The club, which is open to people of all backgrounds, is well known for its work supporting national and international charities, as well as ones in Ashfield.

Phil Bustin, who is spokesman for the Sutton branch, said: “It’s a very friendly group of people.

“We have many long-standing members and also new ones, so it’s quite a mixture.

“We have male and female members in the club and we have a very good social life.”

One of the biggest projects Rotary clubs, including the Sutton branch, take part in is the eradication of polio, which aims to rid the world of the disease.

Closer to home, the club also supports a host of Ashfield charities including Home Start, Lammas Guide and Scout Group, Teversal Visitor Centre and the Christmas Sleigh - which distributes gifts to youngsters around Sutton.

Alongside charity work, the Rotary Club has a packed social schedule which includes trips to the theatre and restaurants, summer barbecues and trips places of historical interest.
