Formby Squirrels is very flexible in how it operates, happy to embrace innovation and truly mixed in membership. The club meets twice a month and does not routinely have meals as an integral part of the meeting.
The business meeting is on the second Thursday of each month in the Grapes in Formby and a further social evening is held on the fourth Thursday which can be bowling or boules on the beach, a walk, a meal or just a drink.
For example last social meeting included a fish and chip supper then a presentation of our donation cheque to Southport Lifeboat and a very interesting chat with their volunteers about the challenges they face. Some of us joined them on their RIB (in the boat house). Approximately a third of lifeboats are independent of the RNLI so local fundraising and support is extremely important. Squirrels fundraising activities focus on local charities. Rotary global goals are also supported.
Squirrels also regularly support "butty bars" held at Formby Holy Trinity Workshop on Saturday mornings where local residents get together over coffee or tea to enjoy the bacon butties or rolls and toasted tea cakes that the Squirrels have prepared for them. A raffle, bric-a-brac table, book sales and home made cakes help with fundraising but the primary purpose for the Squirrels is the community and social aspects of meeting and chatting to the locals. The repartee in the kitchen is also a fun part of the morning. Please come along and join us whether Rotary or not. The butty bar runs every Saturday - the dates of Squirrels hosted events can be seen below.
