Your nearest Rotary Club is Winslow Rotary. There are also 2 Clubs in Aylesbury. We meet every Tuesday evening, generally at the Bell in Winslow. We’d always welcome villagers to join one of our meetings and to see if you’d like to become more involved. Just give me a call or text on 07411 368540.

You can look at Winslow Rotary through two lenses:
Who we are: We are part of a global organisation of 1.2 million Rotarians. Winslow Rotary is a group of 40 local people from a wide range of professional, business and vocational backgrounds, who enjoy meeting regularly for a meal and usually a talk or presentation. We are committed to “Service above Self”. We raise and donate money, we support in practical ways our local community.
What we do in Whitchurch:
In Whitchurch we have funded a “Forest School” at the Combined School. Every year we have Lend a Hand Day, when Rotarians respond to requests for help in and around the home, for those who are no longer feel able to manage themselves. We’d like to engage more with the community in Whitchurch and invite other organizations and individuals to reach out to us.
Further examples of our recent activities are: organizing litter picking on the A413 north of Winslow, delivering food to isolated people during the Covid lock-down, tree planting, crocus planting, helping the Covid -19 inoculation sessions at Winslow and Buckingham, organizing with other Clubs competitions for youngsters in technology, music and debating, Organising and distributing food donated by local companies to food banks in Twyford and Winslow. Arranging for Father Christmas to tour the roads of Winslow and surrounding villages.
As for the Whitchurch Community and Village Plans, the bricks and mortar parts are very important but the life blood of a village life is the community spirit which binds it together. Winslow Rotary is and would like continue to be engaged with villagers.
