WOULD you believe that by the end of August, Dukinfield and Stalybridge Rotary Club is already well on with their arrangements for its Christmas float collections during December.
It is a massive task as they have to secure a Santa and helpers for 12 nights door-to-door and weekend collections at the Co-op, Mossley; Morrisons, Dukinfield and Tesco, Stalybridge.
The next couple of months is also a busy time in the Rotary year.
On August 30, Victoria Greenhaigh talked to members at Stamford Golf Club, Stalybridge, about her sponsored trip to Fiji and then on September 6, at the same venue, they welcome visitors to a murder mystery night entitled ‘Murder on Air’ performed by the Partington Players from Glossop.
The price is £15 and includes a potato pie supper.
On September 20, they have a presentation by the Cancer Warriors charity.
Speaker nights are free to attend and anyone interested can join members for pre and post speech hospitality.
Anyone interested in attending these events should contact Roy on 07730 586269.
And they have their next information evening on Thursday, October 4 at 8pm in the Astley Arms.
This popular event gives local people the opportunity to find out more about the club and how it benefits the community while also giving charities and community organisations a chance to learn how to access charitable donations from the club.
The club has recently enjoyed a period of unprecedented growth in members across all ages and backgrounds, attracted by the combination of community action and fellowship that the club offers.
The evening will include sessions about Rotary International including the End Polio Now campaign and Dukinfield and Stalybridge’s own international project at a school in Bangladesh.
Members will be on hand to answer questions, share their Rotary experiences and provide details for anyone wishing to join.
For anyone unable to come along, more information on the Club and how to join can be found online at: dandsrotary.co.uk or call: 07730 586269.
