It has been a tradition, for 68 years, that the Rotary Club of Witham invited seniors from the town to a tea party a few days before Christmas. Besides tea, sandwiches, rolls, cake and mince pies, there was a chance to catch up with old friends, make new ones and to enjoy the entertainment and even try singing along to old Vera Lynne favourites and carols.
But last year along came Covid-19 and we could not hold the usual tea party. And again this year we shall not be holding a party. This is due to uncertainty in what Covid regulations might apply and also to a fall-off in demand for such events from the town's seniors.
The Rotary Club was saddend that there was no party this year but wishes all the seniors of Witham a Happy and much improved 2022.

The Carnival Day Duck Race is run in July every year. The ducks enter the River Brain after the Carnival procession has passed along Bridge Street about 215 PM. But, of course, the race did not happen in 2020 or 2021 but we intend to be back in 2022.more
For 68 years seniors living in Witham have come to a tea party given by the Rotary Club of Witham. Unfortunately we had to cancel the Party for 2020 and 2021because of the covid-19 but hope for some similar event in 2022.more
