Watford residents interested in giving something back to their community are invited to an information evening hosted by Watford Rotary Club.

The charitable organisation, which is on the hunt for new recruits, will produce a series of short presentations and videos on the Rotary club and the work its members do.

There will also be ample opportunity to talk to Rotary members and ask questions.

Rotary International was founded in 1905 in Chicago and is now the world’s largest international service organisation with 1.2 million men and women as members. In total, there are 33,000 clubs all over the world.

Peter Clark, Watford club member, said: "We are looking for new members, male and female, from all walks of life, to join us in giving something back to the community, while at the same time enjoying social activities and making new friends.

"Rotary Clubs are welcoming places. We meet for friendship and to share our knowledge and experience to help others.

"There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in the many local and global projects Rotary supports.

"For those unable to commit to meetings we also have Friends of Rotary who attend our charity fundraising events and help out where they can."

The event will be held on Monday, October 29, at Watford Town and Country Club, Halsey House, Rosslyn Road, Watford, from 7.15pm.

Cheese and wine will be served during the course of the evening.
