It's that time of the year again and the Rotary club of Market Bosworth is revving up its activities for the festive season.
See what we have planned below!
Please check our website regularly just in case we have to make any last minute changes, especially if the government changes its Covid19 rules. It is still best to be Covid-aware at all times.
The Rotary Club of Market Bosworth wishes everyone a very happy Christmas.
Santa is so very pleased that he will be able to ride on his sleigh to see all the children again this year. Keep a lookout for him in your village.

Santa's helpers will be out and about with him, collecting money for local good causes such as Rainbows Children's Hospice, Air Ambulance, First Responders, Women's Aid and many more.
We have also set up a special site to collect donations; simply go to Rotary's GoFundMe site and enter the amount of your choice.
Your donations go such a long way
Thank you for your generosity.
Last year Santa couldn't make his usual pre-Christmas visits with his sleigh because of the Covid-19 pandemic but was very pleased that he could arranged something very special instead - individual meetings for children on Zoom! This was such a great success that he wanted to do it again this year.
However, Santa is so keen to make up for the disappointments of last year that he has decided that it is more important to get out there and be seen for real, and that is what he is now doing with extra visits.
If your parents have already made a booking, please will they contact the Rotary club using the Contact link at the top left of our Home page..
