Old Town Swindon Satellite Group

In March 2020 just before lockdown, Old Town Rotary launched a satellite group that meets on Thursday mornings at Goddard Park School. Open now for new members. Contact the group’s Chair Carmen Franklin (franklinc@goddardpark.co.uk)

Rotary Satellite Group

Thursday morning meetings

We meet every week from 7.30 am to 9 am for a light breakfast and networking. We occasionally invite speakers to cover important issues such as how we can help to reduce waste; find ways to balance climate change and manage local recycling.

Carrying on online

Right now, we are meeting regularly online. However, we are still active in the community working with the local food bank. For example families without gardens have benefitted as the satellite group opened up the school grounds to enable the families to exercise and play outdoors.

Getting the children involved in Rotary

The group also runs RotaKids at the school. RotaKids is a fun way and exciting way for children aged 7-12 to get involved with activities within their community. RotaKids clubs are based in schools where the teachers, alongside the local Rotary club help and support the activities. Children gain valuable experience in helping others and learning interesting, new things.
