Many happy returns to Devizes Rotary who celebrated it’s 60th birthday last month. It was granted it’s charter on August 29, 1959 as stated in the following in a Gazette and Herald article – https://www.gazetteandherald.co.uk/news/17877280.diamond-chance-devizes-rotary-show-informal-side/
To mark this special occasion, a number of ex presidents joined current members in a lovely celebratory meal last week.

Continuing the success Devizes Rotary have had in providing the hot food for the Imagine Cruising team over the past 3 years, last Saturday we did the same again at a party hosted at Craig and Vicki Collingwood’s house. The theme of the meal this year was Tex Mex, and we were delighted that their two sons, George & particularly Edward, were there to lend a helping hand setting up the equipment and preparing the food. Thanks a lot fellas!
The money raised at the event will be put towards a week’s holiday next year for a deserving family at the Rotary bungalow in New Milton. In recognition of this, we’ll be naming it the Imagine Rotary Holiday. Thanks again to all the crew at Imagine Cruising for helping to make this happen.

The 20th Devizes CAMRA Beer Festival took part on Saturday 6th July, and once again Devizes Rotary were invited to provide hot food for the hungry festival goers. Over 20 Rotarians and friends were joined by members of Devizes Lions to serve over 500 burgers, 800 sausages, and four huge pans of chilli. Veggie burgers and a vegan chilli were also on offer, and this year plastic cutlery and polystyrene containers were replaced by recyclable and sustainable alternatives.
A great day was had by all, and we are delighted to say that our efforts raised just under £3,000 local charities.
62 organisations, offering everything from fitness fun to advice on how to keep your home more secure, were out in force in Devizes on Saturday 14th June. The Devizes Community Area Health and Well Being Day, organised by Devizes Rotary with support from the Devizes Area Board, brought together a wide range of activities. Many of them were aimed at older people but there was also plenty on offer for younger people who were drawn to The Green despite severe showers throughout the morning.
Before the event opened refreshments were made available to the exhibitors and demonstrators by volunteers from WCIL and St James’ Church, then Devizes Rotary took over providing a great mixture of hot food and drinks. All the profits raised have been donated to 3 local charities, namely the Devizes Monday Club, Market Lavington Tuesday Club and Bromham & Rowde Tuesday Club.
