How the banner represents the Rotary Club of Swadlincote
Our contribution to society is shown in our club banner. We had it created to illustrate the area's past, which was predominately coal mining, clay extraction, pipeworks, pottery and ceramics. The present and future is depicted by the tree which represents our location, in the middle of the National Forest.
The Analemmatic Sundial portrayed was our contribution to celebrate Rotary International's Centennial year and was built by members of the club within the National Forest at Rosliston Forestry Centre, where it remains to this day as a potent symbol of our hopes for the future of Swadlincote.
