A newsletter to our Friends of Rotary and information of planned future events


Friends of Rotary Newsletter

Dear Friends of Rotary

Like everyone else Wareham Rotary are in lockdown and are experimenting with various ways of keeping in contact, Houseparty, Zoom, WhatsApp, email and the good old phone!

Sadly our meetings are not happening, it’s such a shame as we had many lovely events planned, a Road Trip, Boules (petanque), Bowls, Natural History Walk around Briantspuddle, Presidents Night celebration on Swanage Railway, visit to St Albans Head Coastwatch station, to which we have recently made a large donation, but alas all postponed until life returns to “normal”

In addition we’ve had to cancel Blood Pressure Day and postpone the Wurzels charity gig for the second year.

We’ve taken bags of food to the Wareham Food Bank

As a Club we are keen to re-start our active programme of social events and charity fund raising.

Meanwhile, thank you for your continued support and we’ll ‘keep you posted’

Stay Safe and Best wishes


An Invitation to the “Friends of Rotary”

July 20th

The Wareham Rotary “Road Trip”

"The Caledonian Caper”

This is an evening of following clues set in the lovely Dorset countryside, sorry, Scottish Highlands hunting the “ Haggis”

It would be great if “Friends” could enter a team (3/4 to a car).

It takes no more than an hour and finishing with a meal and lots of prizes. Just for fun. For more details please contact

In 2019 Wareham Rotary enjoyed a great evening that put “Royal Ascot” to shame with our race night when the ladies (& gents) showed off their finery and also skills becoming a jockey for the evening. Over £2,000 was raised for charity.

We also invite you to “Aintree” on October 23rd for……..

The Great Gatsby Galloping Grand National”

Winding the clock back to the 1920’s, it will be an evening with Flappers, Gangsters and Molls celebrating the lifting of “Prohibition”. In more ways than one…! Enjoy the atmosphere of the paddock, the roar of the crowd, the aroma of “Eau de Stables” and winning lots of cash. An excellent meal will be produced for your delectation. As before, it will be a “Bring Your Own Bottle” to celebrate. Details from Ann
