Welcome To The Rotary Club of Tamworth West Inc.

General Welcome.

What is Rotary? Rotary is an organisation of business and professional people united worldwide to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build peace and goodwill in the world. Rotary’s aim is to make the world a better place for those less fortunate than ourselves.

Rotary Club of Tamworth West is fortunate to have a sound and diverse active membership of some 70 plus members. These members are united in their dedication to raising funds and providing services to assist and help those in the local and surrounding communities less fortunate than themselves.

To this end Rotary Club of Tamworth West organises and participates in a number of local projects and fundraising services including, Midnight Basketball, Shannons Classic Motor Show and The Art Show. Funds raised are contributed toward many local and national causes including Youth Insearch, Billabong Clubhouse and Royal Far West to name a few.

As part of the process of serving the community the Club also fosters a great deal of fellowship within those members participating in the services and fundraising projects undertaken. The Club meets every Monday at 6:30 pm at the West Tamworth Bowling Club where members partake in an enjoyable evening which generally includes a meal, fellowship, volunteering for projects and tasks for the coming week/s and an interesting speaker from outside of the Club. Lifelong friendships are made within the organisation of Rotary.

Club History

In 2006 Rotary Club of Tamworth West celebrated 50 years of service to the Tamworth Community. In recognition of this milestone Club Members Bill Forrest and George Hombsch created a video of some of the memories and activities undertaken by the Club over this period. To take a walk through some of the history of the Club please take the opportunity to watch the video below.

To find out more about the recipients of  our Mission Heart Start project Donate a Battery to Jump Start a Heart visit our Mission Heart Start project page.

It was especially satisfying at the recent District Conference this month in Armidale that our Club received the District Foundation (PDG Albert Brand) Trophy for the Rotary 9650 District in recognition of the success of this community project.

Please continue to donate your expired vehicle and equipment batteries to our Bearfast drop off point as the contribution Year to Date of recycled batteries has been phenominal. The recycling of these environmental headaches can then continue to be put toward needy local community causes.

2 – 4  March 2018 – Japanese Vintage Motorcycle Club event in Tamworth great success.

A big thank you to all of our members who helped cater for the Vintage Japanese Motor Cycle Cub annual rally earlier this month.

Everyone pitched in despite the early starts and worked well together to help make this event a success.

Some stats on the weekend courtesy of our Catering expert Gordon Austin on the catering for the weekend:
. We produce over 400 individual meals
. The participants of the rally consumed 40kg of scotch fillet steak, 35kg of sausages,20kg of bacon,15kg of chicken kebabs, 50kg of salads and over 500 eggs.

The positive feedback from the participants on the high quality of the meals was very satisfying but would not have been possible the dedication of those members involved.

Special call out of thanks to Gordon and Rosemary Austin, Wendy Bennet and LIz Willis for their hours spent preparing salads for the event. Also to Frank Henry for his efforts in co-ordinating the event and Noel Bennet who assisted with a lot of the behind the scenes tasks.

Also a big thankyou to Bede Burke for donating the eggs for the event.

Fantastic effort to all involved.
