Many thanks to them!

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 maintainance (most Wednesday mornings, if not wet). Also some litter picks. Contact for details.

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 open, Mondays to Fridays from 10.00 am to 5 pm (plus Saturday mornings 10-1). There is also a cafe: hours as library, except 10-4 pm weekdays. 

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. This small park is a Memorial to those killed by a bomb in WWII at the site. Now we have secured pump funding, Proffitts are looking for extensive funding and have produced  plans. Planning permission is in progress. We welcome any ideas that you may have.

Recently, Tottington Primary School pupils have again helped with planting along the perimeter wall. Many thanks to them.

Over the last year or so we have donated to, or hosted/assisted at, the following:

British Legion Poppy Appeal at Tesco Woodfields, Various local charities with coats from our "Wrap Up Bury" appeal, the Bleed Box Campaign, a Christmas party for adult Carers, Kids Out for Young Carers, Elms Bank School, assisting a local scout going to an international Scout Jamboree, Bolton Road Food Pantry, Bury Hospice, Francis House and Derian House Children's Hospices,  Brandlesholme Community Centre (for local food aid etc), Bowel Cancer Charity, Rotary Shoe Boxes,Send A Cow, Life Water, LendwithCare and Rotary Foundation (Rotary International's own Charity)

Money was sent  to two Rotary Clubs in Romania and Moldova  to help those fleeing from Ukraine. 

Note that much of this money is raised via our Christmas Float and collections from our very generous General Public.

Our Daffodil planting this year was at Private Peachment VC Town Meadow Park, Tottington.

Note the Spring daffodils along much of Brandlesholme and Longsight Roads are mainly the result of Club plantings over the last decade or so.
