Everyone in Radstock can safely venture out, in the knowledge that their local Rotary has had first aid training ;-)Details
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 Centurion Hotel in Midsomer Norton. Meetings start at 7:00pm and are followed by an optional meal at 8:00pm.
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.
In 2019 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.
Since the advent of Covid 19 our fundraising activities have been severely curtailed, but we have managed to raise some funds through our 100 Club, helped the British Legion sell poppies in November 2021 and donated to local food banks and individuals with specific needs. We have also helped the local Lions Club with their Carol Float collection this year.
As well as the working aspects of the club, we organise various social events (Covid permitting) including skittles and boules evenings, trips to businesses, the theatre, museums and outings such as the Exmoor Challenge Walk. Last year we went on the West Somerset Railway to Minehead for lunch, and called in for cream tea with one of our former members who is a volunteer at one of the stations en route.
