Welcome to Harpenden Village Rotary Club
Club earns top Rotary award
Club President David Nye (right) receives the Rotary Foundation Award from Assistant
Governor Robert Ward, representing the Rotary District.
Harpenden Village earned the award for giving more money than any other club last year
to Rotary Foundation, Rotary International’s charity. Among its global activities Rotary
Foundation has worked for several decades with the World Health Organisation and local
agencies to rid the world of the killer disease polio.
No, the club members are not shooting at each other, they’re making the most of the splendid archery and rifle shooting facilities at Phasels Wood Scout Activity Centre in Hemel Hempstead.
Club unites with The Prince’s Trust
The Club has teamed with The Prince’s Trust to help struggling young people make something of their life. These 16- to 25-year-olds are not in employment, education or training and lack work skills, social skills and confidence.
Since late 2018, Club members have contributed to the Prince’s Trust’s well-established 12-week programme. Participants have open, honest and very frank conversations with the programme leaders. Standards are high and a cooperative team effort is expected. Disruptive behaviour is simply not tolerated.
