Many homes in Colwall and surrounding areas received our Club leaflet in 2022, with the aim of raising awareness of Colwall Rotary and attracting new membership.
We now are extending our membership area to Ledbury following the closure of Ledbury Rotary Club in 2021.
Rotary in general, and Colwall and Ledbury are no exception, had a torrid 2 years of Covid restrictions, through which time we stuck faithfully to national guidelines, and still managed some outdoor activities such as our annual popular Duck Race in West Malvern. Many Rotary groups have indeed folded during this time (Ledbury being one unfortunately) but today we are in fighting fit form and ready to rebuild.
We meet fortnightly on Thursday evenings 7.30 for 8 pm, nominally at our base, Colwall Park Hotel. Some our meetings include food, some do not. We offer fun and friendship, our skills, time and effort to support activities in the local community as well as some national and international causes, though as a small Club we do concentrate on local matters, such as Colwall and W Malvern Primary school, Scouts, Colwall Players and similar local groups. We organise speaker evenings, fun events, Xmas carols, visits to factories and other local businesses.
During our leaflet drops we have particularly found many people imagine Rotary is for men only. This is very much not the case; our group currently has lady members and we are always searching for more. The 2022-23 Rotary International President is Jennifer Jones. We are a refreshingly open organisation for everybody who has the energy to organise events, meet and have fun. Why not come to one of our meetings or talk to us, you may be surprised just how energetic we are in our private, business, and community lives!
