Members of Penarth Rotary Club – one of the major philanthropic institutions in the town – may decide to wind-up the club at its Annual General meeting next week.

The club has been established in Penarth for 78 years  and once had almost 60 members . Now membership was dwindled to just 26 and the club says it has difficulty ion attracting new younger members

Originally the club met regularly at Penarth Conservative Club but then moved to the Sea Shore Grill at Sully and then to the Sully Constitutional Club.

The closure of the Penarth Rotary Club is by no means certain. Members and officials are working on solutions to try to keep it going and the final decision will be made at the AGM  to be held at Sully on Tuesday May 3rd.

Penarth Rotary Club donated the iconic Penarth Town Clock (on the roundabout) to the town and is also one of the three organisations which work together every year to arrange the annual November 5th Firework Display at the Athletic Ground .
