About Taradale



If you would like to know more about the Rotary Club of Taradale, and perhaps enquire about joining the Club, then please ring the President at



Rotary Club of Taradale

in Lockdown



The Rotary Club of Taradale,

New Zealand

is in lockdown for the duration of the

Covid-19 epidemic.

Message from President Richard Hay 

By now we are all in lock down and quickly learning to cope with what is a new experience for many of us.  I have bought paint, building materials and other items so I can do all those jobs around the house that I never seem to have had time for, or more truthfully made time for.

Some of the Napier Presidents met with AG Gary Hemmings last week together with DGs elect Grant Spackman and Ross Pinkham.  All agreed that the main thing we can do at this time is to keep our communication channels open.  Bob and Janey have a come up with a bulletin format and this will be be sent to all members on a regular basis.  If you have a contribution for the bulletin, please send to Bob and Janey, maybe tips on how to cope in trying times or an interesting story that you have heard.  I have also asked Directors to keep in contact with their committee members and all members are welcome to contact me.

The board will continue to manage the business of the club, albeit in a different way.  Lastly, if you need help, please ask, often we are good at offering help, but not always willing to ask.  Please let me or a board member know if there is something that you would like help with.  Please also let us know if you are available to offer help.  With a small pool of members, I am sure we can cover most requests.

Keep safe, keep in contact and good luck as you manage your lock down.

The last activity the Club undertook before being closed down was the annual Puketapu Auction and Fair (known as PAF).
