Rotary Centenary 1905 - 2005

Rotary Centenary Pathway Celebrating the Rotary 1905 - 2005 and 80 years of Rotary in Royal Leamington Spa 1925 - 2005

Rotary Centenary Pathway in Royal Leamington Spa

With the help of the Warwickshire District Council and the Rotary Club of Royal Leamington Spa, a pathway was created from Princes Weir to the Grand Union Canal

Picture of the weir in 2004 which prompted the idea of the Rotary Centenary Path project

Thanks to the Rotary Club of Royal Leamington Spa for initiating the idea and Dale Best, Pete Rourke and Roger Dewsbury from WDC for their huge input, the Rotary Centenary Pathway was completed.

The Rotary Club paid for 100 trees to be plated in an area between the weir and the canal whilst the District Council agreed to resurface the pathway and print 10,000 leaflets


The finished pathway and where the Rotary Roundels will be placed. The trees planted are on the right of the pathway across from the Railway bridge to Leam Road.

Now after a space of 15 years we are eventually completing the project by placing a rotary roundel along the pathway to comemorate the event project.

A reminder that the Rotary Club of Royal Leamington Spa has been in the town for 80 years (1925-2005) supporting the community and how the Warwick District Council supports the Rotary Club in return.
