Sherwood Forest Rotary Club planning ahead

The beginning of July sees the start of a new Rotary year and Sherwood Forest Rotary Club, led by new president Dave Dennis, is hoping the local community will join in planning projects by becoming members of the club.

Its main activities over the next year will be a Charity Golf Day on Wednesday, 15th September; the Annual Community Proms Concert, which it is hoping to present on Saturday, 13th November; the Christmas Victoriana Charity Collection; and the popular Duck Race.

The club said: “Of course, there is much more involved in being a Rotarian. Maintaining links with the community and supporting projects in local villages is very important, so having members from each village would help keep us in touch.

“All ages are welcome, so feel free to contact a Rotarian for further information or write to us at

“Details of our Charity Golf Day in September will be out soon, so look out for the posters. If you would like to be included in our golf mailing-list, please write to us at the above address and you will receive all the information, including posters and entry forms.

“It is a team event and will be raising funds to support local groups. There is also an opportunity for businesses to sponsor a hole and we will be holding a raffle on the day so are asking for prizes to be donated for the raffle table.

“It’s a great event, which is sponsored by local solicitors Jones & Co.

“In November we are hoping that the easing of lockdown will permit the Dukeries Community Band to rehearse once more and prepare for the Annual Proms Concert. It is a truly local event with musicians from local villages taking part and an opportunity for lots of audience singing.

“So, let us hope that we will permitted to proceed with the event.

“The past year has been difficult for many Charitable groups, but Sherwood Forest has still managed to support the local community as best we can.

“We look forward to our new Rotary year under new president Dave Dennis and hope that you will be able to support, or even join us, as we continue or work on behalf of local and international good causes.”

The club said president Malcolm Bevan has stayed at the helm over the last two years as it made its way through the pandemic and thanked him for his leadership — and everyone for their continued support.
