(For Rotarians: For the time being, our Business meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month)
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. Having now secured pump funding, we will be asking Proffitts to manage extensive funding and progress this scheme. In the meantime we are asking local people for their ideas.
