This Rotary programme is aimed at trying to improve the local environment, contribute to young people's awareness of the issues and to provide a practical route for members to recycle.
The Local Environment
The Ashby Rotary Club has for many years maintained several underutilised areas in the town and improved them attractively with low maintenance planting. The first of these, laid out in 1972 is the Pithiviers Gardens. Another exists next to the Fire Station and a third in Churchside Walk. The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Gardens in South Street were opened on 31st May 2012 and have become a useful stopping off place on the way back from town to the sheltered housing off Prior Park Road. These are being actively cultivated by members of the Rotary Club. If you would like to help please contact our secretary
The Club has recently worked with groups to improve Gilwickshaw brook and is working with the Phoenix Charity to expand environmental education to all persons irrespective of abilities.
The Club is actively promoting the recycling of ink cartridges, aluminium cans and a range of recyclable items amongst its members and friends. If you have a scheme needing support please contact our secretary.
