Pictures from past events and meetings
At our meeting on February 9th, 2018 we celebrated the success of RoLo - Rotary
working alongside the National Lottery Big Warsop Community Chest. Since its
launch in 2013, over £38,000 has been awarded to local groups, charities and
community projects, including a £12,500 contribution from the Rotary Club of
Warsop, Shirebrook and District.
Over 50 organisations in the Warsop area have been awarded
grants, the majority of which have been either community groups or groups
working with children and young people.
Joining us for the evening were members of the Big Warsop
Community Chest committee and to help us celebrate we were entertained by the
fabulous Voices of the Vale choir, and then later we heard from some of the
organisations that had received grants - including Hetts Lane Holiday Club,
Infotech, Oaklands, Warsop in Bloom and St Theresa’s Community Café - about how
the money had helped them.

Our club has been in existence since April 1969. In that time we've raised thousands of pounds for both local and international charities and causes.
We even have a twin club in Zofingen, Switzerland.
We love having a great time and at the same time putting something back into our community.

Object of Rotary
The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster;
- The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
- High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
- The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
- The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
Rotarians apply the 4 way test of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
