Welcome to the Rotary Club of Romsey Test website

Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Romsey Test. I hope you enjoy reading about some of the things we do.

The Rotary Club of Romsey Test is perhaps best known for Walk The Test Way.   This year it will be on Sunday 14 October. Each year 700 walkers walk various distances of the beautiful Test Way, raising funds for charity. Planning is a twelve months’ activity; and on the day we guide and encourage walkers along the route. Since the first Walk in 2003, this has enabled walkers to raise the outstanding sum of over £700,000 for charities of their choice.

Further details and how to register are on the  link above.

We run Reminiscences of Romsey for over 200 senior citizens and members of friendship groups in the town. This is an afternoon of friendship and entertainment at the Crosfield Hall. It was a one-off event for the millennium and we have been running it ever since.  In 2018 it will be on Saturday 10 March.   If you know of someone who would like to attend, please get in touch.

The Rotary Club of Romsey Test organises the Mayor’s Picnic on behalf of the Mayor of Romsey. In 2018 it will be on Sunday July 1st.  This is a very enjoyable day attended by literally thousands of people from Romsey and the surrounding area, taking place on the first Sunday of July. The event also provides an excellent opportunity for local charities and organisations to raise awareness and much needed funds.

Our Community activity is at the heart of what we do. We run a ‘Tell Us Your Wish’ for people to nominate a charity or worthy cause we may be able to help. We also run a ‘Know Your Blood Pressure Day’, to raise awareness of strokes and other consequences of high blood-pressure.

We are also very active as a Club in helping the young people in our community, working with local schools  and youth groups. Our activities  include the very successful annual Young Technologist  Tournament and Peace Jam activities helping young people to learn about the the skills needed to settle disputes whether on the world stage or in their own lives.

Members of the Rotary Club of Romsey Test seek to serve our community and make a positive contribution to Community, Youth and International activities and charities.

If you would like to know more or help with these and similar activities, please get in touch. We welcome new members.

Thank-you for your support. We look forward to hearing from you.
