PUBLIC EVENTS

Our Activities

Members of Uttoxeter Rotary Club not only "Serve the Community" but also enjoy great "Fellowship". This is a flavour of what we get up to.


Service

This takes many forms, with Members taking on a variety of challenges.

Abseiling down Alton Castle in aid of their Youth Scheme
At Christmas we tour the streets with Santa's Sleigh and one very committed Father Christmas!

 

It's amazing what gets left over after the V Festival. We collect the perfectly good tents and the local Scouts and Cubs benefit. We also join the District in sending many more overseas.
Kirk House is a local Old Peoples Home. With the help of the Club they now they have a minibus, complete with tail lift for wheel chairs.
Gary and his mother love to get out into the countryside, but his disabilities meant that he needed transport. With the help of funds raised by the Club we provided them with a bike and trailer
Replacing a historic part of Uttoxeter, the Johnson Lamp, was our way of celebrating the Centenary of Rotary
At Christmas the more vocally gifted members visit the Old Peoples homes and entertain them with Carols
The Aquabox is one way we help those Overseas who have faced catastrophes, such as the Tsunami in Sri Lanka or the Earthquake in China
Every year the Club holds a Christmas Party for the Old People in Uttoxeter. Apart from the Christmas meal they are "entertained" by Members with acts of varying ability
The Younger members of the Community are not forgotten. The Young Chef award is a well supported annual competition for Middle Schools in the area
..and for those with seeking the challenge of Public Speaking are not forgotten with the "Youth Speaks" competition.

Fellowship

Whilst active in serving the Community, the Club Members do have time to enjoy themselves in a variety of ways.

Amongst local venues we have visited Blithfield Hall with our wives
"Members only" visit to the Micro Brewery on a farm near Abbots Bromley was very well supported!

 

A visit to a major block paving manufacturer was proved a real eye opener
There are more formal occasions, such as the District Conference held at Bournemouth, or other conference resorts such as Llandudno
...and not forgetting Charter Night
