Serving Up Easter Treats in the Town Gardens

Swindon Old Town Rotary is part of a lively community in Swindon. Our community links keep us up to date with the community helping to make Swindon a great place for everyone. You can read about our laptop for local schools project here.

This is Old Town

In the heart of Old Town, you will find, This is Old Town. It is one of our closest community links and a great site to find out about local businesses, and local events too. Visit This is Old Town for up-to-date information on independent retailers, Professional Services, and local street events. Together the group is working on a number of campaigns. These include improving the area, preserving our heritage, and establishing free parking for visitors.

Bangladesh Association

Representing the Bangladeshi community in Swindon is the Bangladesh Association. The organisation works towards creating understanding and developing friendships across the town. Why not visit the stunning memorial to the Mother Language which is in Victoria Park. It’s is there to remind us of how all local languages are part of our world heritage. The Mosque in Manchester Road has regular open days. A visit to the mosque is a great opportunity to learn more about the Muslim Faith and the history of the Bangladeshis in Swindon. However, we have close community links because two of our Rotarians are members of the Bangladesh community. Visit their Facebook page for more details.

South Swindon Parish Council

South Swindon Parish Council was established in 2017. The Parish Council is responsible for fourteen allotment sites as well as the Old Town Library, and Broadgreen Community Centre. The Old Town Library and Broadgreen Community Centre were both under threat of closure. However, the Parish Council took on the management of these facilities and are delighted to not only secure their future but see them thriving again.  Check out the area on their website here. And follow all the regular activities on their Facebook Page
