(For Rotarians: For the time being, our Business meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month except January 2021 )
When normal meetings resume we will have a Business meeting for Rotarians on the First Wednesday with other meetings/events/projects on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th weeks of the month open to all.
On 3rd weeks in the month we undertake various community projects, at present including helping out at Pets in Need (Mondays), St John's Garden/churchyard clearance and improvement (most Wednesday mornings if not wet).
Some of us are also helping at Tottington Centre with the voluntary library service to replace that relinquished by the local council in December 2017.
The library is beginning to re-open slowly although visitors are not allowed inside yet and the popular cafe is not yet open (deliveries are available, see Centre website)
With much help from Tottington Primary School Year 5, we are continuing our project to develop Whitehead Gardens, Tottington . Eventually, we hope to have a pleasanter park to visit and to make it part of a Tottington History Trail. Now we have secured pump funding, Proffitts are looking for extensive funding and have produced early plans. We welcome any ideas that you may have.
2020/21 Meetings and Evenings: As previously stated all meetings are taking place on Zoom
Over the last year or so we have donated to, or hosted/assisted at, the following:
It's Time4Change, Christmas hampers for adult Carers, Kids Out and Christmas Toy box appeal for Young Carers, Mayor's Charity Appeal, Rotary Foundation (including sale of crocus bulbs for Polio Plus), Bury Hospice, Francis House and Derian House Children's Hospices, Brandlesholme Community Centre (for local food aid etc), Broughton House, Asthma UK, Mercy Ships, Mary's Meals and Water Aid.
