Edinburgh comes to Hillingdon
In what is becoming something of an annual tradition our members and partners are in for another real treat in July - a preview of a show being taken to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe! Our member Joan Greening is a well-established author & she has arranged for her show "The Amours of Lillie Langtry" to be performed just for us at the Ruislip Conservative Club. Actresses Sarah Archer & Emma Hopkins comprise the cast!

We're proud to announce that a coffee morning as part of McMillan great coffee morning, organised in October by Brenda Udall, one of our members, raised £315. Well done Brenda - such a worthy cause!!
Charity Golf Day
Tuesday 25th July 2017 saw us run our 21st Annual Golf Day, at Batchworth Park Golf Club. 29 teams of 3 took on the challenge in mostly great weather for golf, with the winners being Tube & Bracket "C". Of course the big winner was Alzheimers Society to whom we donated the proceeds of the day, raising £7,000.
We'll be running this year's Golf Day on Tuesday 24th July 2018. Use the contact form above if you'd like to enter a team.
Just like the local schoolchildren, we're "walking once a week". Every Sunday we gather at either Ruislip Lido (cafe) or Rickmansworth Aquadrome (car park) for a lesiurely stroll (about 1.5 - 2 miles). Then we get down to the important business - coffee and a chat. To find out where we're walking this week and let us know you're coming with us, drop us a line using the Contact form dropdown and select Weekly Walk. Look forward to seeing you.
Polio Eradication Update
For more than 30 years it's been Rotary's International prime goal to work towards the eradication of Polio. While we have encountered a recurrence of infection in Nigeria last year, the overall number of cases is now down to 21 in 2017, an all-time low.
We work with Young People
Rotary in Great Britain and ireland (RIBI) runs nationwide competitions for Young People - entries are organised locally by clubs and winners go forward to area, regional and national finals. We help to organise our local round of the public speaking competition "Youth Speaks"; and encourage young people to enter other competitions. We also help with reading at local schools and with mock interviews
