 "Meeting at the Heart of the National Forest"

SWADLINCOTE is the premier town in South Derbyshire and lies close to the borders of Leicestershire & Staffordshire.

It forms part of a larger grouping in the locality with the communities of Castle Gresley, Church Gresley, Midway, Newhall and Woodville. 

 

Our Club Banner illustrates the area's past which was predominantly coal mining, clay extraction, pipeworks, pottery and ceramics.  Moving through to the present and future, being part of the National Forest with "Conkers" the forest's central, hands on experience on our doorstep. 

The Analemmatic Sundial portrayed was our contribution to celebrate Rotary's Centennial and was built by members of the club within the forest at Rosliston Forestry Centre.

We are part of Rotary International, which is the world's largest service organisation for business and professional people.   All clubs have several committees which give a differing type of service, more information is available from the Club Action Groups.
