The Wirksworth Rotary Club aims to serve the local community by running a number of projects and activities which benefit the people of Wirksworth and the surrounding area and at the same time raise money for selected local causes and charities.

Our community activities include: 

  • Memory Cafe - the 'Thanks for the Memory' cafe meets on the 2nd Monday of each month in the Wellspring Church hall and offers a range of activities for elderly people to join in with or just have a chat.
  • Well Dressing - a team of Wirksworth Rotary Club members and their spouses and friends design and decorate a Well Dressing as part of the Wirksworth Carnival celebrations in May.
  • Plant & Bulb Sales - our very successful annual sales of plants (in May) and bulbs (in the Autumn) take place in the Wirksworth Memorial Hall.
  • Christmas Festivities - each year we erect and light the Christmas tree in Wirksworth Market Square, as well as running the Santa Sleigh around the town to raise money for selected charities.
