Many homes in Colwall and surrounding areas will have received through letter boxes our Club leaflet ,with the aim of raising awareness of Colwall Rotary and attracting new membership.
Rotary in general, and Colwall is no exception, has had a torrid 2 years of Covid restrictions, through which time we have stuck faithfully to national guidelines, and still managed some outdoor activities such as our annual popular Duck Race in West Malvern. Earlier zoom-only meetings, followed as the restrictions have eased, by more normal meetings under current rules. 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, usually 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 current President is Sadie Skipworth and all Rotary groups include and encourage lady members. 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!
