Community Services Committee

Meeting on alternate months 6 times a year - reporting to Club Council each month.


We are anxious to listen to any request for help from any local group with a particular need.

On the Thursday of summer half-term, we support the Friends of the Derwen at their Summer Fete with side-shows, with the emphasis being on "fun".

We carry out a Street Collection and Supermarket exit collection in May/June in Oswestry with recent beneficiaries including :-

Friends of Parkies

Orthopaedic Veterans

Dementia Action Alliance and other Rotary charities..

We support the Friends of the Orthopaedic Hospital at their new Christmas Bazaar at the beginning of December in the main entrance of the hospital.

The annual "Millicent Kaye Art Competition" will once again be held at the end of June. Open to year 5 and 6 Primary School pupils and entries are displayed at the Qube.

Our Rotarians assist on the entrance to the Grandstand at the Oswestry Show in August.

In the unfortunate possibility of a serious local disaster our Rotarians volunteer to co-ordinate help to relatives and friends of those involved, should the local professional services be unable to cope. This is a Rotary inspired initiative called "Reaction".

The 2 bench seats up on the Old Racecourse are maintained by this committee.
