Our work in Eccles

Club members please log in for more information.

Because most of us live and work in the Eccles area, we feel passionate about supporting the Eccles and Monton communities.

This page is a look back at some of the projects we have been involved with over the years in our local community. 

We are keen to develop new ideas and would like to hear from anyone in the Eccles and Monton area who perceive a need that needs to be met.  We cannot  guarantee to take on all the ideas that come forward, but we will evaluate them all and if it is possible we will harness the considerable resources of the Rotary movement to make things happen for our community.
