Welcome to People of Action
Why not join us and help in transforming our communities
By joining Rotary, you will be on the road to transforming communities.
We fulfil our purpose and achieve our goals thanks to the dedication of our members. At Rotary we have the unique position of being rooted within our own communities but with a global outlook, ready to tackle challenges at home and abroad.
We are seeking volunteers
We need volunteers willing to give your time and get involved in working in our local community, raising awareness of our international projects; having fun and making lots of long lasting friends. Get in touch now for more information.
There’s new kind of Rotary in Swindon
Well there are big changes for Rotary, as there are for all membership organisations, right now thanks to Covid 19. It is difficult to keep up our work, in challenging circumstances, supporting those in need. We can no longer meet in person, share meals and time together or raise charitable funds through our regular activities such as Swindon’s Famous Duck Race and Family Day Out.
And yet we are carrying on with new members joining us and ideas for helping others and activities we can enjoy whilst physically distancing. We have learned to work online using Zoom, to help in the community where we are volunteering our support and our friendship.
Why not contact us to learn more or attend a weekly online meeting held on Wednesday mornings at 8am to 9am. Contact our secretary Bob Barrett for more information.
Swindon Old Town Rotary also has a Satellite group the Thursday Welcome Breakfast and it’s open for new members too. This group meet on Thursday mornings at Goddard Park School, Park South and monthly membership cost just £10. The get together used to meet every week from 7.30am to 9am and offered a light breakfast, networking and occasional visiting speakers covering the important issues of today such as climate change and recycling.
Right now that is being conducted on line but the members have already been active in their community supporting the local foodbank and enabling the use of Goddard Park School grounds for families without gardens. If you would like to learn more please contact the chair Carmen Franklin. She will be delighted to hear from you.
