To celebrate 100 years of Rotary in Cheltenham all three Clubs are collaborating in the following projects.

"Tree Planting"

This project has been developed with support from Local Businesses. Friends and Members.

Locations for all the trees have been identified following discussions with Cheltenham Borough Council, Cheltenham Borough Homes and Gloucestershire County Council. Planting will commence on Saturday 24th October, with the first trees being planted in Montpellier. Schoolchildren will be invited to take part in the Project.

The first stage of the project is to plant fifty trees in Autumn 2020 and the remainder in Autumn 2021.

Project Manager and Landscape Consultant, Sue Jenkins said ‘We are grateful for the generous support and enthusiasm shown by the local Community wanting to provide a lasting environmental legacy for the town. During the pandemic residents have seen the importance of the public green spaces for informal recreation. Trees enclosing these spaces provide shelter and shade as well as dramatically increasing biodiversity and habitat for small birds.

Rotary clubs have worked for decades to eradicate the epidemic Polio, from the World, by funding and participating in vaccination programmes. To highlight this work, the first trees will be planted on End Polio Day, with symbolic purple crocuses planted around the base of trees.

Updates on the progress of the project can be found within the Home Page Featured item for Centenary Trees.

All Pictures taken for the "Trees Project" can be viewed within Photo Galleries that can be found at the top of this website Home page under "What we Do"

Mile of Coins

To celebrate the Centenary it is proposed to hold a Mile of Coins event in Pittville Gardens on the 28th May 2022
