Family walk and Picnic

Walking from Dorridge Park

On a sunny Sunday on 7 September 2014 we had one of our Rotary Friends and Family walks and picnic, starting at Dorridge Park and having our picnic at Packwood House.  During the summer these are regular events, which are usually around 5 miles easy walking, when Rotarians and family, together with Members of Inner Wheel (and dogs), enjoy friendship.      

Save the date for World Polio Day 2014!



World Polio Day: 24 October 2014

World Polio Day is quickly approaching on October 24th. This is a chance for Rotarians, clubs, and districts across the world to come together to fight polio. There are many ways you could mark the day. Dedicate your club meeting to focus on Rotary’s work to end polio that week. Community fundraisers on/around World Polio Day are great a way to raise awareness of our cause in the general public.  You could take the opportunity to remind government officials to support the global commitment to a polio free world- Rotary’s top priority. On World Polio Day, wear your End Polio Now pin and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

Visit to France

Lunch at Nojalls-en-Clotte

In August several Members, together with wives and Members of Inner Wheel enjoyed a week of friendship in the Dordogne. Many villages were visited with lunches and wine along the way.


A Bar-b-Q was recently held at Rowington Village Hall (due to a sudden downburst !!) which raised funds for International projects.  £250 was donated to the Children of Chernobyl Appeal and a further £250 donated for Sandams. 

Knowle & Dorridge Pro-Am Competition

A successful Pro-Am Golf competition was once again held at Copt Heath Golf Club when £8000 was raised in support of local charities.  Presentations were made to both Acorns Children's Hospice and Dream Makers each receiving £2500.   Our thanks to all those who supported us and gave us sponsorship to makle this such a successful event.

Manaca School Project

Team Triathlon fundraiser

I am President of Roborough Rotary Club (the sponsor of Literacy in a Box) this year and I will be doing the cycling leg of an Olympic distance Team Triathlon on 6th September. Last year's President will be swimming and next years President will be running. We are raising money for Literacy in a Box and Right to Play but the option exists to support just one of these two charities. More details are on our Virgin Money Giving events page.
