Rotary Wellington meets every Friday lunchtime at the Buckatree Hall Hotel, situated beneath The Wrekin with a view overlooking the Shropshire plain.
Are you interested in joining a friendly group of men and women of all ages who volunteer some of their spare time to help others in the local community?

As we head towards singing Carols at both Farcroft & Oakwood, our seasonal Club lunch and Christmas Day at Farcroft, I can reflect on the last couple of months.
We have enjoyed The Church Service at All Saints & the lunch at Hadley Park Hotel, our Film Night and some excellent speakers. In addition, we completed, with other Clubs, the purchase & livery for the Greenfields Africa pick-up truck which is now in service. We stepped in, with Sophie’s project management, to rescue the British Legion Poppy Appeal in Wellington and we were well represented at the Wellington Remembrance Day Parade and the moving Service.
The Fairbourne Fund review of the summer’s activities showed how well the committee have done not only in getting deserving families away on trips in the face of some difficult challenges but also in the financial management of The Fund. Well done everyone.
Of course, as Norma Ross reminded us, we can also be very proud of our commitment to Telford Tree of Light and I’ve enjoyed my work at Blue Peter Club, the Town Centre desk and of course data inputting.
Many thanks for all your hard work which makes me very proud to be a member and leader of this Club.
I hope you’re looking forward to 2020 as much as I am.
With all good wishes to you & your families. Enjoy your Christmas and have a great New Year.
Vic Young - President 2019-2
