Summer will soon be with us and the Rotary diary is rapidly filling up as we plan the many and varied events that we are organising.

Next Monday from 6pm in Bohunt Academy’s library we are hosting an evening where we will celebrate all the activities of our club. It is an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in learning about Rotary to come along and find out more.

On Saturday, August 4, we have a car boot sale at Adur Recreation Ground plus the annual bank holiday carnival and procession on Monday, August 27.

If you enjoy music and dance then book Saturday, November 17, in your diaries for a fund raising concert in aid of Care for Veterans and the Rotary Foundation fund.

This is to be held at Bohunt Academy with a fabulous and fun evening of music, dance and drama. More details to follow soon.

Organising events is something that Rotary do regularly and, as well as the fund raising events, we also take a group of youngsters from Palatine School to a fabulous KidsOut day at Chessington.

The park offers a specially reduced price to youngsters with special needs and Rotarians accompany the children and their carers on rides. It is an amazing day of seeing the incredible delight on the faces of these great youngsters as they enjoy the thrills of the rides and entertainment on that special outing.

To join Rotarians in making a difference to the lives of others, both locally and internationally, have a look at our website:, call us or come along to one of our Monday lunchtime meetings. We would love to welcome you.
