Welcome to the Rotary Club of Coventry Jubilee
President Ron Gibbs and all members of the Club extend their warmest greetings to you. Currently, the Club holds a face-to-face meeting most Tuesday's at The Tollgate Stonehouse Pub. We gather at 7.30pm ready to have a meal at 7.45pm.
Once a month we hold our Business Meetings via Zoom and our Tuesday club meetings are Hybrid so that Members who are unable to attend face-to-face Meetings can still log in to listen to our Speaker at 8.45pm.
We are a diverse group of ladies and gentlemen members from a wide variety of different professional backgrounds some being owners of their own business, members working in a company, for the NHS, in Education, and Retired Members. We welcome interested persons of any age, gender, race, or religion to join our club meetings to see what we are about.
Rotary is all about fellowship and service to the community. Our members enjoy friendship, fun, social support, and business networking through a program of social and leisure activities.
Coventry Jubilee Rotarians are enthusiastic, fun-loving, active volunteers who give of their time and talents to serve communities. A warm welcome awaits anyone interested in finding out more. Should you wish to attend any of our meetings, simply fill out the form on our contacts page - you will be made most welcome by all Club members.
The Rotary Club of Coventry Jubilee was formed back in 1977 (the year of the Queens' Silver Jubilee) and is one of five Rotary in Coventry clubs.
The year that the club formed was also notable for the incorporation of AppleComputers. It was also the year that a psychic called Romark attempted to drive blindfolded, guided only by his psychic powers - he promptly crashed into a Police van.
We are extremely proud that several of our members have been with the club since it's formation.
Our club banner represents the Coventry Cross, a monument first erected in Coventry in 1423 to denote the medieval marketplace. The Coventry Cross was rebuilt in 1544 and was said to be the most beautiful market cross in the country as it was decorated with many statues of kings and saints, and as well as being brightly painted, it was also covered with much gold. It was said at the time that on a sunny day, people could not bear to look directly at it! After falling to decay it was demolished in 1778 and not rebuilt until the 1960s.
Coventry benefits from having 3 Rotary Clubs, each meeting at different times in the week and at various venues, so it's likely that you could find a Rotary Club to suit your particular situation.
What Coventry Jubilee Rotarians Do
In addition to offering members fellowship and fun, Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. The Club has always supported the local community together with national and international projects. These include, amongst others:
Help our fund-raising events - You will often see Rotarians out in the Coventry town centre and surrounding areas, particularly around Christmas time, raising funds for various charities. We wear distinctive reflective tabards with the Rotary 'Humanity in Motion' Emblem. So if you do see us, please do make a contribution - however small and just say Hello as well and ask any questions you have about what we are up to. All monies raised go directly to the charities we support.
