Welcome to Terrigal Rotary   

 Harley Newham  President 2017 - 18

 The Rotary Club of Terrigal is a volunteer service organisation 

 where members donate their time and resources

 to help others in the community and throughout the world.

 When Rotarians get involved, it's not just their communities,
 clubs and projects that benefit - they benefit as well!



will be 

at The Scout Hall Terrigal Drive.

We raise funds for our charity donations and will be able to support youth projects, both locally and in Africa.

We are now collecting books for the next one

in November 2018.

 Contact JOHN, on

0411 176 364

​if you have really good books for us to collect.

Thank you



 We have helped to re-form the Terrigal Bushcare Group with the Council.
We meet now, on 2nd Tuesday of the month, with a supervisor, Susie, and attack the weeds at the
west end of Terrigal Rotary Park.
Please come along and swell our numbers, so we can make a difference to the lagoon wetlands,
forest floor, and help the mid-level plants provide cover for the native fauna.
                          Just ring John on 0411 176 564.

We partner with Ray White Estate Agents, to bring joy to local children in need, at Christmas. 
Estate Agents Ray White, Terrigal, will be a collection point for the presents, (wrapped and labelled for girl or boy, and their age, please), around their display tree.
Terrigal Rotary Club will collect the presents on December 20th, and deliver to the local Smith Family branch, for distribution.
Thank you so much for your help in providing some cheer to those in need on our lovely Central Coast.
Our annual Vocational Awards Night 
is always one of the highlights of our Club’s program, and last week’s event was no exception.  45 members, partners and guests attended the evening when we recognised 10 individuals from our local community for excellence in their vocation.
The evening’s proceedings were overseen by our Vocational Service Director, Rob Moffat, who ensured that everything ran smoothly and to time.
Our local Federal member, Lucy Wicks, was invited to attend the evening, but work commitments in Canberra meant she was unable to be present.  She did, however, send a letter of apology which was read by Gina Growden, in which she congratulated the Awardees and thanked them for their commitment to their vocations and for their efforts in making the world a better place.
In Lucy’s absence, our incoming District Governor, Peter Ward, officiated in handing out the Awards.  Photos were taken by Peter Hamilton.
Three Awardees: Diane Taylor, Garry Adlard and Kathleen Hunter were recognised for their volunteering work cleaning up Terrigal Beach. 
Other Awardees were:
Fiona Thorrington, Cruise and Travel Consultant, Cruise & Travel Authority, Terrigal
Kevin D’Almaida, Catering Supervisor, Breakers Country Club
Wendy McCormack, Training Director. Radio 94.1
Roy Henry, Secretary, Terrigal Men’s Shed
Chris Gethen, Supervisor, Breaker’s Country Club
Jim McCormack, Directory, Technical Support Radio 94.1
Rebekah Lester, Esteem Fitness Solutions
Last week we held a Presentation Night for Community Service Awards.
Six local people from a variety of areas in our community, were honoured with a plaque and certificate, detailing their achievements. 
A sizeable number of attendees included Past District Governors Terry Blair, Harold Sharp, Gina Growden and DG Elect, Peter Ward, as well as Honorary member, Adam Crouch M.P., who also presented the awards.
Awardees with their nominators
Our Club sponsored three RYPEN students this year from Terrigal High School.  They came to our meeting and gave very fluent accounts of their experience of the weekend camp. They shared their thoughts on the value of the activities which helped them with public speaking, teamwork, making friends and developing their own leadership skills.  All three highly recommended the camp and will encourage others to attend the winter camp this year.
On 4th March, Harley and Jill, manned the Club stall at the International Womens' Day Expo at Erina Fair.  Lynn Davies from Rotary Terrigal was on the committee that organised the Expo, and many congratulations to her and the team.
On Monday 30 November 2015, the Terrigal Rotary Club project, Bush to the Beach entered it second phase, with a visit to Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club who welcomed students from the Coonamble High School by providing a BBQ dinner sponsored by Gosford North Rotary.  Surf Club Member Tim Schofield spoke to the students, representatives from Coonamble and Terrigal High Schools, and Rotarians (from Gosford North and Terrigal) on the topic of “what is surf club life about” followed by questions and answers.
The students were presented with a Terrigal Surf Club Cap and T-Shirt which were gratefully received as mementos of their time at the beach. 
The students then went to Toowoon Bay Surf Club who had donated the use of their club as a dormitory base,  and thanks should be mentioned for the Club’s generous effort in cooking breakfast for the students early every morning.
The Coonamble students also visited the Marine Centre at Terrigal, went Ice Skating, played basketball at the PCYC Bateau Bay, went Bowling.  They visited Manly and Tuggerah ShoppingTown for movies and retail therapy.  The group then left early on Friday morning to return to Coonamble.
One high school has about 1,100 students and the other just over 280 students.  So what would students from the Central Coast of New South Wales – Terrigal High School have in common with or could learn from students from a school on the Central Western Plains of New South Wales – Coonamble High School?
The idea of an exchange for students who have identified as Aboriginal and satisfied a set of school participation requirements was conceived by Rotarian John Spath, Rotary Club of Terrigal following a visit to the Rotary Club of Coonamble in 2014.  The idea was promoted to teachers of the Coonamble and Terrigal High Schools who also shared a passion for providing interesting educational, learning and cultural opportunities to their students. 
The Rotary Club(s) of Coonamble and Terrigal and the Clontarf and Girls Academy which are both part of Coonamble High School are providing financial and organizational sponsorship and support for the student exchange.  The Coonamble and Terrigal High Schools are providing teacher and transport support.  The combined aspirations and commitment of Rotarians and members of the school executives has led to the creation of the Beach and Bush exchange experience.
The exchange has two legs out-bound Terrigal High School to Coonamble from Monday 19 November – four days (completed) and in-bound from Coonamble High School to Terrigal from Monday 30 November – five days.
On Saturday 14th November 2015 Year 8 Erina High School student Radley hosted a learn to surf and beach awareness experience for local youth.    
The community project was provided under the auspices of the YMCA – Youth Frontiers Mentoring Program.  Radley’s volunteer mentors  Ms Bianca Shearer and Mr David Mylan and the program coordinator Mr Scott Browne assisted Radley on the day.
 Mr Tony Hughes and Ms Tilly Hughes (father and  daughter), the proprietors of  and  professional surfing  instructors – Avoca and Terrigal Learn to Surf donated  their time and  equipment so some young people could  have an experience that  would not otherwise been  available to them.  After surfing Avoca Beach Surf Life  Saving Club, volunteer Surf Life  Saving Patrol Captain Mr  George Ruzek provided  an overview on the role and  responsibilities of a surf life saver and beach and surf  safety.
  The Rotary Club of Terrigal provided funding for a sizzle.   No food was wasted as  stock on      hand was donated to the  Woy Woy Youth Cottage.
A great day was had by all.
On behalf of Radley and Youth Frontiers thank you Rotary for your support.

Ceremony for Gifting the Terrigal Rotary Hall
August 13th 2015
A very well attended Ceremony for Gifting the Terrigal Rotary Hall to Gosford Council. Many thanks go to those who were instrumental in arranging the handover, and in planning the ceremony. Well done to David Mylan, Lyn Davies, Paul Harris, Robin Hearder and Peter Halliday.  Thanks also go to Gina Growden for her excellent talk of the history of the hall.  The Mayor, Lawrie McKinna gave a short talk, and then Gina and Lawrie unveiled the new plaque, dedicating the Hall to the memory of those Terrigal Rotarians who built and maintained it over the years. Morning Tea, provided by the Council, rounded off the ceremony, and allowed time for members and guests to chat and reminisce over the photos and history displayed.
