Shipston on Stour

Perhaps you think that Rotary is a weekly lunch/dinner club where people sit and chat!

Last year we organised the Tour dĀ“llmington bike ride with 181 riders, the Rotary Victorian Evening, the Fashion Show, the Songs of Praise held at St Edmunds during the 'woolly weekend', an outing for the elderly of Shipston to Weston Super Mare and one Rotarian helped with the polio immunisation programme in India.....The Santa Street collections, before Christmas, are a moment to treasure for many children and we know that some are disappointed because we can't get round every Shipston street.

One of the Senior teams from Shipston High School reached the National final of the Rotary Youth Speaks competition, and many Rotarians helped with mock Interviews and CV writing at Shipston High School.

Coming up we will have a large presence at the Stratford Marathon and the Youth Fest.

You can't do all that just by having a weekly chat!

Our focus is on supporting young people but via the Rotary Victorian Evening (and the Wool Fair and Hidden Britain initiative, which Rotarians help with) Rotary also encourages and supports local business.

Cotswold Tour d'Ilmington

Last year nearly 250 cyclists took part and it was a great family day out. The unique blend of 2 rides included the same 10 mile flat/family ride, as last year, with refreshments half way round, and an 'undulating' ride of more than 30 miles for the more experienced cyclist.
