The Rotary Club of The Wrekin, although small in numbers, is friendly and extremely active, focussing on the Youth in our Community. The Club has strong links with schools and other youth groups such as Scouting and Sea Cadets and it supports and takes part in most of the RIBI Youth Competitions and Projects. Having stated that Youth is a focus, one project this year is the refurbishment of the Summer House at Wellington Cottage Care.
We meet every week on a Thursday evening and the last meeting of each month is a social evening where we arrange visits to theatres and concerts, play skittles or ten pin and of course the meals out are a regular feature of these social events.
Congratulations to the Rotary Telford Tree of Light on being Awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
The team of Trustees and Committee members from the Rotary Clubs of Ironbridge, Telford Centre, Wellington and The Wrekin have worked hard and raised over half a million pounds over the 21 years of the Tree of Light.
