Region 13

NATIONAL COUNCILLOR - STEVE JAMES

Hi I am Steve James, the Region 13 Councillor which covers the southern half of Wales stretching from Aberystwyth in the north to Fishguard in the west and Newport in the east.

The majority of Clubs meet once a month for a dinner and to catch up with old friends. Some regularly have speakers and indeed one (Swansea) meet twice a month the first being a business meeting where all officers (mirroring those on Table Council) give a report and the second being a dinner meeting.

Those with a feeder Table do tend to have some degree of connection with Table to a greater or lesser extent. Some are involved in community service projects but most tend to support their Table with fundraising rather than doing any themselves.

Quite a number have international connections either through 41 Club or more usually following on from their Table days.

The Clubs represent a wide range of locations from big cities to small towns and as with Table everyone is assured of a very warm welcome at whichever Club they visit.

I would encourage all Clubs to share events and update your meeting diaries and meeting places and I would be delighted to take the opportunity to attend one of your Club meetings or a function. Just let me know and I will endeavour to attend.

If you are a 41 Club member in the area looking for a friendly club to hook up with then let me know and I'll put you in contact. If you're an ex-Tabler moving to this part of the world, or already living here, and wanting to join a local 41 Club then please do get in touch at region13@41club.org

I am also an Ambassador for Round Table Children’s Wish, and I am always looking for other like-minded people, from the Round Table Family, to also become an Ambassador particularly those living in west Wales.

Steve James
