The club's aim will continue to try and help those in need of support especially in the local area through an active programme.

This year the Rotary Club is hoping it will be possible to run events such as the Senior Citizens Boat Trip, the Ascot Brass Autumn Concert, and of course the traditional Santa’s Fun Run.

During lockdown, the Rotary club has been holding zoom meetings to discuss charity work, community events and host interesting speakers from all over the world.
