Welcome to the Rotary Club of Knutsford
We are a band of about 30 successful people who meet once a week to have a meal, put the world to rights and raise money for charities and other good causes.
And we have fun!
Like spending an afternoon at Jaguar Landrover's world-beating car factory at Halewood. From seeing reels of steel coming in and being cut and sahped into a car body to the final vehicle being fully fitted out to a customer's specification. Every 92 seconds!
An amazing visit.
Meet our President, Thomas Dickerson
Tom is rasing money for the Bridge2aid charity by walking a section of the Sandstone Trail each month on a Friday. You are most welcome to join him.
We regret we must report a lamentable drop in dress standards amongst some of our members.
In particular, the wearing of gaudy ties; examples of which are shown here.
Members are reminded to maintain standards, please.
This photo from York says it all!
A pleasant evening walk finishing at the Spinner and Bergamot restaurant.
Not long ago, we had an introduction to archery.
Thanks to the North Cheshire Bowmen at the Knutsford Sports Club in Mereheath Lane
Some of us, though, were better equipped.
We meet most weeks at the Courthouse Hotel and Spa, Knutsford, WA16 0PB, in the centre of Knutsford.
We arrive about 7:00pm for a meal at 7:30pm and then often listen to an invited speaker talking about- well- just about anything!
From charity work to helicopters, international Girl Guide camps, steam trains, energy saving, building sand damns in Africa (our latest project)- you name it.
One project we organise each year is the Knutsford Jog, now in its 17th year, that has raised a total of over £100,000.
Our next project is a sand dam. Some arid areas of the world get more rain than Manchester does in a year, but all in a week or two.
A sand dam captures flood water and holds it for a year or two. This changes the lives of the local people.
