The Rotary Club of Thornbury
Meetings at Eastwood Park. Falfield, Gloucestershire
Thornbury Inner Wheel - District 10
Thornbury Inner Wheel open to ladies who like to have fun while helping in the community and raising money for charity.
As an organisation the Club has three objectives. These are to promote true friendship, encourage the ideal of personal service and foster international understanding. Many members of our Club are wives and partners of Rotarians whilst others have joined through personal recommendation and a desire to help the Community.
I became President in July 2021 for the second time since moving to Thornbury in 2006 from Nottingham to be nearer family. I was President of Beeston Inner Wheel Club prior to moving to Thornbury. I attend the Thornbury Methodist Church and have been involved with several voluntary organisations. I am still involved with the Thornbury Volunteer Centre. My hobbies include, theatre visits, Visiting National Trust Houses, and gardens, knitting and reading
Each year the President chooses her Charity for her year in office.
My Charity for the year is ‘Phase’.
A mental health charity for young people and support for their families, based at the Castle School.
We have a regular monthly meeting, held on a Wednesday evening where we have a meal followed by a Speaker of note on various topics. We also take the opportunity to discuss any Club Business.
During the year we have a number of organised events to places of interest and also evening theatre visits. A group of our ladies have a Knit and Natter Club once a month making children’s garments and blanket squares.
Wherever possible we look for opportunities to raise money for worthy local charities and good causes. Internationally we support Water Aid
We also support Rotary in their Fundraising and recently took part in their highly successful Walkathon.
If you would like to know more about us, why not give us a call or come along to one of our evening meetings where you would be made most welcome.
The Club’s meeting place and times are going to vary over the coming year on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Anyone interested in joining us can get further details from the President or Secretary. Names and Phone Numbers listed below.
