Activities

 
 

We organise a large  firework display at Monkton Park in central Chippenham for the local community every November. This professionally organised event attracts a large audience from a wide area, and as well a presenting a fantastic display, this is an ideal means of raising money for our local and international charities.

     
 

Youth Activities:  Each year we run a number of events for young people in Chippenham,  these offer the opportunity to progress to regional national finals and include; Young Chef, Youth Speaks, Young Photographer, Young Musician, Young Citizen and Young Writer.

 

We also actively promote Interact, which is Rotary’s International’s service club for young people between the ages of 14 and 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting

 

In addition, each year we sponsor two local students on the one week Rotary Youth Leadership Programme and also one local athlete. Liaising with other Rotary Clubs overseas, Chippenham Rotary also assist in the arrangement of short term youth exchange programmes.”
