2019 Red Cross First Aid Training
Everyone in Radstock can safely venture out, in the knowledge that their local Rotary has had first aid training ;-)details
2019 Charter Night at The Pig
22 members and partners enjoyed a superb meal at The Pig, Hunstrete, to celebrate the 24th anniversary of the club's charter in 1995.details
This diverse club of men and women has been running for 25 years and meets formally on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday night each month at The Fromeway, a family run pub in Radstock. Meetings start at 7pm and are followed by an optional meal at 8pm.
The current members are from a broad range of backgrounds, some work full-time, some have their own businesses and some are retired.
The Club aims to raise funds and provide practical support for local community organisations and individuals, as well as being involved in international aid projects including the eradicaion of Polio worldwide and disaster relief, working in conjunction with other local Rotary clubs.
Last year we collected over 6,000 used school books from local primary schools, which have now arrived safely at a primary school in Kenya. The transportation of the books was achieved by sharing a shipping container with another charity, Just Be A Child, based in Stevenage.
Our chosen charity this year is SWALLOW, and so far we have raised £500 from Car Boot Sales held in June and July at Farringtons Farm Shop, Farrington Gurney.
As well as the working aspects of the club, we organise various social events including skittles and boules evenings, trips to businesses, the theatre, museums and outings such as the Exmoor Challenge Walk. Last year we visited Thatchers Cider and enjoyed a talk and guided tour around the factory, followed by a meal in their restaurant with complimentary cider!
