Programme Highlights

Our after dinner speakers cover a wide range of topics, ranging from the light hearted to thought provoking. Topics have included the work of the Arbitration, Conciliation and Advisory Service (ACAS), Cycling Holidays in France, the Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association (DEBRA), Public Relations, Tackling Drugs Together, The Trans Siberian Express and the History of Bramhall Hall.

Once a month, we have a committee night where members get together to plan and progress the club's activities.

We also have special meetings on occasions such as our formal Charter Night (our birthday celebration!) in September and the President's Evening with our partners in March.

We raise funds for our charitable donations in a number of ways, including our Fun Run, Father Christmas Grotto, social evenings of many kinds, and sponsored activities (we have helped to run Swimathons, and have walked Morecambe Bay!).

Recently members of the Club visited India to help with the International Polio Plus project (see home page for photo). Rotary are committed to eliminating polio around the world and, while we have not yet succeeded, there are only 4 countries left. The Bill & Melinda Gates foundation recently committed millions of dollars to the project.

We also help our community in other ways. We maintain two local footpaths, and we drive blind and partially sighted people to a dance evening weekly. We even provided the labour to build the Millennium Bridge in Bramhall Park in 2000 ! We have run a barbeque at a Jazz Night organised by the local Rugby Club, had a Ceilidh, run concerts,

We have a varied and active social programme, providing great relaxation and entertainment. Recent events have included a barbecue, a house party, Go Karting, walking (a weekly event for some retired members!), a Murder Mystery dinner, a race night, a Big Band dance, snooker tournament, bowls, a pub games night, a visit to Ladies Day at Chester Races, theatre visits, motor cycle racing at Oulton Park, pedal cycle racing at the velodrome and lots lots more.
