Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside

Being a Rotarian is a challenging, stimulating and rewarding experience.

The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside has been supporting the Bishopdale Burnside and Greater Christchurch community for over 46 years with a number of projects and fundraising events.

We welcome enquiries from interested persons who wish to learn more about Rotary.

We also welcome visiting Rotarians to our meetings.

Members gathered for fellowship at our venue which is the Papanui Returned Services Association rooms at about 5.30 pm each Monday for a 6 pm meal.

After a dinner a short business section commences at 6.30 pm which is generally followed by a speaker who addresses the club on a topic of interest to Rotary.

Meetings generally finish at 7.30 pm.

Today, would have been our first day of BOOKarama 2020 sale.

I am sure there are a number of you out there who would have loved to have been able to replenish your book supplies, especially while we continue to be in our isolation bubbles during this COVID-19 lockdown.

Whilst we are unable to run this year's book sale, the GOOD news is that we have been able to lock in the dates for next year 2021.

So BOOKarama 2021 will be held Friday 30th April, Saturday 1st May and Sunday 2nd May 2021.

Remember that is next year 2021 and NOT next week.

Our Rotary members look forward to seeing you in 2021.

Some of you may have read this morning's issue of “The Press” where on page 10 it featured an article titled “Rare bird breed back from Brink”. The article was on NZ’s rarest forest bird “kakariki”, an orange-fronted parakeet, having had the most successful breeding season in more than a decade.

And what does this have to do with Rotary you might be wondering.

The Department of Conversation (DOC), New Zealand National Parks & Conservation Foundation (NPCF) and Christchurch Helicopters teamed up several years ago to help save the “kakariki”.

In October 2018, the Rotary Club of Bishopdale awarded Christchurch Helicopters Ltd its Business Excellence Award 2018 to recognise a business that has made a significant contribution to the community, employment creation and who sets high standards of service.

Its great to see the successful impact that Christchurch Helicopters and its partners has had in the conservation area in particular helping the Orange-fronted parakeet back from extinction.
