Community Service

Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.

~~Kingsford Lane Country Park is soon to have more than 300 additional ash, beech and spruce trees as part of a worldwide scheme by the Rotary movement to plant more than 1.2 million trees across the Continents – one for each member of the organisation.

Although the Rotary Club of Kinver has a membership of 45 the club has agreed with the National Trust to plant 300 of the broadleaved species as part of the Trust’s Woodland Trust initiative.

In December, the Rotary Club of Redditch supported twenty one children for a visit to the Pantomime, Snow White, at the Palace Theatre.

The Club has been working with Batchley Support Group for the last two years and when it was mentioned that some children had never been to a theatre, Rotary took on the challenge.  A visit to the Pantomime was duly arranged, thanks mainly to the very hard work of Rotarian John Holloway.
