Sherwood Forest Rotary Club

by | 6 June 2021 | Rotary, Sherwood

The beginning of July sees the start of a new Rotary year and the Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest are hoping that members of the local community will join them in planning their projects for the year by becoming members of their club.
Their main activities over the next year will be the Charity Golf Day on Wednesday 15th September, the Annual Community Proms Concert which they are hoping to present on Saturday 13th November, their Christmas Victoriana Charity Collection and the popular Duck Race.
Of course, there is much more involved in being a Rotarian. Maintaining links with the community and supporting projects in local villages is very important, so having members from each village would help keep them in touch. All ages are welcome, so feel free to contact a Rotarian for further information or write to the club at sherwoodforestrotary@yahoo.com.
Details of the club’s Charity Golf Day in September will be out soon, so look out for the posters. If you would like to be included in their golf mailing list please write to them at the above address and you will receive all information including posters and entry forms. It is a team event and will be raising funds to support local groups. There is also an opportunity for businesses to sponsor a hole and they will be holding a raffle on the day so are asking for prizes to be donated for the raffle table. It’s a great event, which is sponsored by local solicitors Jones and Co.
In November, they are hoping that the easing of lockdown will permit the Dukeries Community Band to rehearse once more and prepare for the Annual Proms Concert. It is a truly local event with musicians from local villages taking part and an opportunity for lots of audience singing. So, let’s hope they will permitted to proceed with the event.
The past year has been difficult for many charitable groups, but Sherwood Forest Rotary Club has still managed to support the local community as best they can. They look forward to their new Rotary year under new President Dave Dennis and hope that you will be able to support, or even join them, as they continue or work on behalf of local and international good causes.
President Malcolm Bevan has stayed at the helm over the last two years as they have made their way through the pandemic and the club thank him for his leadership. Thank you too for your continued support.
