An ageing membership has been cited as one reason for the Rotary Club of Campbeltown cancelling its next sale of the century.

A Rotary spokesperson said: ‘Because of illness and bereavement among members, and also because of an aging membership, the last sale at the end of September this year proved difficult.

‘It could not have taken place without the very generous help received from non-Rotarian friends.

‘We hope to have another sale in the autumn of 2018 and no furniture can be considered for collection before early April 2018.’

The spokesperson added: ‘We have forty three members in the club. With  two in their 90s, several in their 80s and several more in their 70s.

‘The youngest will be Stephen McSporran, a lawyer at C D Mactaggarts.

The trouble is difficulty in attending lunch-time meetings.

‘We have tried monthly evening meetings, but older members don’t like driving in the dark.’
