ROTARIANS have sown the seeds of legacy in Littlehampton.

Members of the town’s Rotary club planted a new tree outside Littlehampton Library, in Maltravers Road, on Friday (April 11) to celebrate the organisation’s 90th anniversary.

Littlehampton’s deputy mayor Jill Long helped the club’s president Alan Moss to plant the silver birch in the library’s grounds.

Alan said he hoped this tree would be a fitting way to not just celebrate the anniversary of the group but to also create a lasting legacy to inspire a new generation to join the organisation.

Speaking about the idea to plant the birch, Alan said: “We were celebrating our 90th anniversary at the Norfolk Arms in Arundel and we started thinking about ways to mark the anniversary. We wanted something that would stand the test of time and we’d heard the library needed a new tree so we thought this would be a perfect fit.”

The Rotary club has helped to support countless charities and organisations, both locally, nationally and internationally.

It has a fund-raising shop in Rustington and a youth Rotaract Club for 18- to 30-year-olds.

Rotary International recently celebrated it centenary.
