Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia...

Who are we, and what do we do?

We are a group of 40 young at heart individuals who meet weekly. 

Visitors are always welcome but please let us know if you want to come. 

Here are just a few of the things we have fun doing throughtout the year

FEBRUARY / MARCH

Swimarathon at Yarborough Leisure Centre, with up to 60 teams of 6 swimmers for up to 55 minutes. this year's raised about £6,000 for charity.

JULY

The one and only Lincoln ZOOM THE FLUME (TM) , usually. Sadly the 2016 event has been cancelled due to insufficient ticket sales, meaning that the two chosen charities would not benefit adequately after expenses. Try again in 2017? We shall see.

OCTOBER 

The Lincolnshire Sausage Festival was the brainchild of Peter Harrold, a club member. This has now been held for around ten years and celebrates, no surprise, the Lijncolnshire Sausage (the clue's in the title).

Enjoy a day of sausage making, sausage cooking & sausage eating, cookery demonstrations by Rachel Green in the newly revealed Lincoln Castle.

The festival also includes a Farmers Market in Castle Square, along with entertainment from the Cosmic Sausages & Mr Sausage. 

NOVEMBER 

Young Chef Competition for students of secondary school age leading to a national final this year being held in Welton.

LINCOLN SANTA FUN RUN & WALK

Again, the idea of Lincoln Colonia. 2016 Santa Run will be held Sunday 11 December, and will again wind through the castle and the uphill streets of Lincoln.
