Each year, District 1130 – Rotary in London – hosts more scholars than any other District, because of the draw that the University of London represents. This year we are hosting 31 Scholars in our District and even that was not enough to fulfil the demand. This year we are working with the next door District – D-1260 – who will be hosting four ‘overflow’ scholars studying at the University of London.
The group met for the first time on Sunday 01 October 2017, where there was a briefing on living and travelling around London, complete with information on reduced fares for students, how to stay safe and within budget, and the benefits of regular visits to Rotary Clubs!
The students’ number one priority is their studies however, and DG Michael Hodge provided useful hints on coping with reading lists.
We wish all the scholars a most successful year, and look forward to meeting them all again at the District Conference later this month.
