Welcome to Evesham Rotary Club
The Rotary Clubs of Evesham are 'people of action'! We are committed to helping good causes both locally and around the world. We try to 'make a difference' for our community and invite you to use this website to find out more about what we do and how you can get involved.
We have two active Clubs in Evesham - one that meets on Tuesdays (Rotary Club of Evesham - see the Club Calendar for details) and another (Rotary in the Vale) which meets on a Monday evening after work. We are two friendly bunches and welcome all new members with warmth and enthusiasm.
Tree of Light Switch-On: Thursday 25th Nov
This year's event had many familiar features - MC Patrick Staines ably conducted us through the blessing by Bishop Robert Paterson, the welcome by President Pamela, a brief address from District Governor Graham Ogden, and thanks and a count-down to the switch-on from Mayor Sue Amor. Mince pies and punch were on offer, and carols were led by Sandy Capaldi with music from the Bretforton Silver Band.
The big difference from previous years was that Wychavon District Council kindly agreed to arrange for Workman Bridge to be closed, as the ceremony was held in the forecourt of the Methodist Church, due to building work on Workman Gardens. The extra space on the bridge allowed more than three hundred spectators to enjoy the proceedings.
