Welcome to the Rotary Club of Wirksworth
Our annual plant sale held at the Wirksworth Memorial Hall on Saturday 13th May was another outstanding success, with net income currently standing at about £1700 (£300 up on last year's total) and we hope that this will rise to in excess of £1800, after we sell the limited number of plants remaining at the Well Dressing.
We are delighted to welcome our newest member, Bea Jagger, to the Wirksworth Rotary Club. Bea was formally inducted into the Club on Thursday 11th May and we wish her every success and enjoyment as part of the Rotary fellowship.
The Rotary Club of Wirksworth is extremely proud to have been presented with a Certificate of Honour by the Wirksworth Town Council for outstanding service to the community. The Mayor of Wirksworth, Councillor Andy Pollock, presented the certificate to President David Haspel at a Civic Service on Sunday 7th May.
The Rotary Club of Wirksworth was chartered in July 1948 and currently has 28 members. We meet on Thursdays at 7pm at Waltham House, St John’s Street, Wirksworth, Derbyshire DE4 4DT. There is normally a speaker at each meeting covering a wide range of interesting topics, with the exception of the first Thursday of each month when we have a Business Meeting.
The Club is very active helping local good causes in Wirksworth and the surrounding area, and each year raises thousands of pounds for the benefit of the local community, as well as in support of wider life-changing major projects here in the UK and internationally.
