About Coventry Jubilee

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 market place. 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 1960's.

Coventry benefits from having 5 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:
  • Supporting Youth Opportunities such as, Youth Speaks and the Design and Technology Project
  • Supporting The West Midlands Special School Sports
  • Funding disadvantaged and children with challenging needs in Coventry to a day out at Drayton Manor which is supported by Kids Out
  • Supporting and raising funds' for charities such as the Air Ambulance, the Myton Hospice and the Bwengu Project
  • Funding youth education and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other worthy professionals for vocational and career development.
