The Rotary Club of Heywood's members are people of action. During the recent Covid-19 pandemic they drafted and delivered hundreds of kindness cards for the vulnerable, lonely and elderly residents of the Town.Details
The Rotary Club of Heywood was set up in 1933 and has been serving the community and residents of the Town for the last 87 years.
We are a dual gender Club made up of like-minded individuals who are keen to offer their time and services to benfefit of others. Indeed, we are a friendly bunch and are keen to welcome new members to assist our onging efforts to make a difference and to enjoy each others company.
We are involved in a vast array of community activities throughout the year that include organising and running numerous Christmas Parties for elderly residents living in the various Sheltered Accommodation Homes located throughout the Town; we arrange an annual Public Speaking Competition for students from our local Schools to participate in and also help facilitate an annual Young Chef competition. In addition, we support many local Charities and Community Organisations as well as National and International Groups.
Indeed, you will often see us in local supermarkets raising funds and during December we host a very special guest when the one and only Father Christmas makes his way around the streets of Heywood on his Sleigh!
We meet fortnightly on the first and third Tuesday's of the month at 7pm on Zoom only, where we enjoy speaking to each other from our homes and discuss Club business. Any additional information relating to Club Meetings is communicated in advance on our Facebook page - https:facebook.com/The-Rotary-Club-Of-Heywood along with details about our various activities.
Once the Restrictions of physical interactions caused by the Covid Crisis are Lifted, we look forward to meetng in person at a chosen venue
