Wrexham Rotary Club was founded in 1928.
To have served for all these years means we are doing something right.
To many outsiders a Rotary Club exists to raise money for charities. Yes, this is an important and visible sign of our activities, but we have many other facets. We believe in high ethical standards, the idea of service to others as a worthy enterprise and in International fellowship and goodwill.
Individual Rotary Clubs are members of both National and International Rotary organizations, so the Wrexham Club also is active internationally. In particular, we are twinned with the Rotary Club in Kerala, India, and support many of the activities in the children's hospital there.
President David Lydford has outlined his priorities for Wrexham Rotary Club in 2021-22 as we emerge from the restrictions placed upon us by the Covid Pandemic.
The Club will concentrate on supporting the needs of the less fortunate who live in the Wrexham area and the environment in which we all live. In particular, we will support the Red Cross and Refugee Kindness in their work with refugees and asylum seekers. We will work with the homeless to grow fresh fruit and vegetables for their own consumption and continue to support the Rhos Community Cafe and a Food Bank in their work to support low income families.
Local co-operation -
We will continue the work already undertaken to bring a closer working relationship between the four Rotary Clubs in Wrexham and do what we can to promote a collaborative approach to addressing local issues under the banner of "Rotary in Wrexham".
Fund Raising -
We all hope that 2021-22 will see us returning to some resemblance of a normal life so that we can resume the fundraising activities that we have been forced to curtail for the last year. We are hopeful at some point that we may be able to hold a Charter night and at least one other fundraising event.
Meetings and Social Events -
We will resume our lunchtime meetings with a social lunch on the second Wednesday of the month and a business lunch on the fourth Wednesday. Where there is a fifth Wednesday in a month, we will aim to hold an evening social function for members and guests. In the interim weeks, we will hold Zoom style meetings so as to include those who cannot attend the physical meetings and to make use of the potential for visiting speakers.
Membership -There is a real urgency in the need to increase membership numbers and all members are tasked to make a real effort to make the "Each one bring one" recruitment drive a reality. Also, lets try to aim for the forty to fifty year olds, who will be the future of the Club.
We meet on Wednesdays at 12.30 for 14.00(Currently we meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays at the Ramada. On the first & third Wednesdays we meet on Zoom at 19.30) Ramada Plaza Hotel
