Rotary- the Social Side.

Rotarians are ordinary people doing extraordinary things by doing good in the world, but we’re also cheerful, friendly people with a great sense of enjoyment and fellowship. Our social events are a wonderful source of happiness for all our members and their families, young and old; on these pages, we’ll display examples of our gatherings when we don’t carry out fund raising – we just have fun.

On this page, we will post a record of some of the events which have occurred during the current Rotary year.

Darts n’ Dommies 6th October 2021

It was great to be back at the Old Wulfs Club after so long away. It seems there had been a change of staff  and some improvements to the venue. A good turnout of established and new members and partners gathered to challenge for the title of Champion of the “arrows ” and the “ spots.” I C darts was Geoff Lowndes while in the lounge Peter Wright supervised the Dominoes competition. An evening and fun and fellowship with the usual break for fish and chips. As usual it took a long time to finish ( 11 o’clock!!!) but the winner of the darts was  Brian Bailey and Denzil was runner up in the darts and winner of the Dominoes.

Darts winner- Brian Bailey

Richard Horrell with Mel Eves- and central- Denzil the Dommies winner

Boules Night 23rd September 2021

Fifteen Rotarians and “other halves” plus Susan Bloxham ventured forth to the Plough at  Claverley for the Boules evening on 23rd September and, fortunately, the weather was kind. The “Organiser Supremo” Geoff  (even though not a member of the Fellowship Committee !!) did a sterling job sorting out the matches and the scoring  assisted by Peter Hand and “Pitch-raker” Derek! 

The eventual winner was Derek Morgan closely followed by Geoff (2nd); Peter Hand & Robin T-M; Clive (welcome-home!); IPP Brian B. and “Stormin” Norman Holmes.

“Chat, chips  and sandwiches “ followed in the pub with a reminder that the next Rotary/Fellowship meeting is Darts and Dommies  on Wednesday 6th October

The Kingswood Trust 12th September 2021

Fortunately the weather was kind when a party of 35 adults and 11 children
visited Kingswood School for a Wolverhampton Rotary Club event.

Trust Manager Rachel Wells with tortoise ‘George’ and new member Ade Adeoye along with his wife Olabisi and children Alexander and Alexandra

Our Guides were Head Teacher, Rachel Wells and her Staff Volunteers who took us on visits to view the many outdoor attractions of their sheep;
tortoises; pond  life; chickens; beehives together with lovely walks through
wildflower meadows and woodlands.

This was followed by a tour of the buildings when Rachel told us of the background to Kingswood and the
benefits enjoyed by many children on their visits which often involves
overnight accommodation in comfortable dormitories.
