Young Artist Competition
The children had the chance to express their ideas through any artistic medium other than photography, to interpret a given theme, to use their artistic skill, imagination and creativity.details
Blood Pressure Awareness
In collaboration with the Stroke Association, and the with the help of trained volunteers, once a year we encourage people to have their blood pressure checked. The aim is to reduce the incidence of strokes among people of all ages.details
We're for Communities
The reason we say this is because we often get asked "What does Rotary do?" We are a diverse group of people, from all walks of life, who action local, national and international projects. The Rotary movement is big, with 34,282 clubs and over 1.2 million members worldwide. As you can imagine there are a lot of different projects going on.
Our Hemel Hempstead Club is involved in stroke awareness and handtool collections, in tech tournaments for the young and Christmas carol concerts for the elderly. We solve murder mysteries over lunch just for fun and invite to frugal suppers to raise awareness of the homeless.
2016 saw the arrival of our Santa Sleigh, which we intend to make available to a range of community groups. For more detail, click here.
