What we do locally

The Christmas Carol Float is our big activity each year.
Please see the separate page for details about this.

Supporting Young Professionals in Aylesbury
In the past few years we have been very successful in supporting young workers in Aylesbury to develop their leadership, teamworking and professional skills.

We are proud to have sponsored Emma Eyles, Andrew Kay and Ollie Moore on Group Study Exchanges to Australlia and New Zealand in 2011 and 2012.

Our District holds an Annual Rotary Young Leader event at RAF Halton most years. Again, we've been very successful in discovering and then sponsoring young professionals to attend, in support of their personal development.
Kevin Brook, Maria Villarico, John Reddington, Gregory Falcon, George Allen, Suzie Dudley and Alan Mwale have all come back from this event saying how important it's have been in their personal development. 

We are looking for a further 2 - 3 young people aged 18 - 30  from Aylesbury to sponsor to attend RYLA in 2015. Please contact us if you'd like to apply.

Young Photographer Competition.
In 2012 we held the inaugural Young Photographer competition which we organised in collaboration with the Wendover & District Rotary Club.  This is a National Rotary competition and the winners go on to District, Regional and National Finals.  

In 2013, we supported Stella, from Bedgrove Jnr School to go on and win the National competition! Many of our competitors were placed in District and Regional finals. Is Aylesbury the hotbed for the next generation of photographers?

The Essay Competition
This is a competition arranged through local schools for students in their final year of primary education.  The children write a short essay on the subject of "What job they want to have" when they leave grow up.  The essays are judged by Rotarians and the winning student gets the opportunity to spend a day experiencing their desired job. 

Rotary Rounders
In 2011 we held the inaugural Rotary Rounders Tournament for local businesses.  It was a fabulous day, helped by sunshine. A small amount of money was raised, but more importantly  it brought together businesses and members of the community in a fun way.
