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.

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 Broad Green Community Centre. The Old Town Library and Broad Green 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

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.
