Being a member of ROSL means many different things depending on who you ask. It could be the central London location, the bedroom accommodation, the food and drink, the network of reciprocal clubs, the arts and educational support we provide to young people, the event programme, the Commonwealth connections, the friendships, and much more. In the next of our 'Your ROSL' series, we speak to member Kevin Rogers to find out what about ROSL is important to him.
How did you first hear about ROSL?
I saw a ROSL advert in a British Airways in-flight magazine. I was a frequent flyer with work back then.
How long have you been a member?
Nearly 17 years, and always happy to renew.
Which three words would you use to describe ROSL?
Commonwealth. Arts. Refuge.
What do you enjoy most about being a member?
The ability to entertain family and friends at the clubhouse. Also, participating in ROSL ARTS activities. I am the proud owner of several paintings bought from recent exhibitions. I have a couple of pictures by young artists starting out in their careers which I display at home.
What one thing would you change?
I would bring the restaurant back into service, but I recognise I alone cannot make it economical to operate. [Watch this space - Ed.]
