Our annual quiz is upon us once more!

 

Well it’s that time of year again……..

Friday 2nd October

7:30pm

(On-line via link)

Have you got your tickets yet for our sixth annual quiz, set by Jon & Chris – a very fun evening with popular quiz hosts! Previous quizzes have been very popular so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

This will be our sixth annual quiz, but this year will be a bit different because we can’t meet up. However, we hope you will support us on-line as we support WUTH – Wirral University Teaching Hospitals Charities.

On-line start will be 7.30pm. Please make your own arrangements for snacks, wine, fizz, beer and soft drinks to lubricate the grey matter – much as we’d love to be able to serve you as in the past, we’ll have to wait until next year.

Booking on-line you should receive an email confirming your booking. Then, on Thursday 1st October you will receive the link to the quiz via the email that payment was made from.

This year, ticket prices have again been held at only £5 per person with teams of up to 4 people.

Tickets can be obtained by:

  • contacting us at:

    • westkirbyrotary@gmail.com

We are looking forward to seeing you for an interesting and fun evening.

Fun and fundraising during “lockdown” – what has been going on?

YOU MAY WELL ASK, AND EVENTS HAVE CERTAINLY OVERTAKEN US, BUT WE HAVEN’T BEEN IDLE IN THE MEANTIME.

Our first priority was finding a way that we could get together as a group and by getting to grips with Zoom we adapted with phone-ins for those who didn’t have computer access. Initially our meetings were supportive, check- ins for our members but gradually they evolved in a Rotary sense with ideas about how we could help others with shopping etc or as active NHS helpers.

Eventually we moved towards thinking of ways to fundraise and although some of our planned events had to be cancelled, below you can see what we have managed to do so far.

Our virtual bike ride – outside West Kirby concourse on static bikes from the gym – could this go ahead?

Oh yes it did. Some of us actually rode real bikes along the Wirral Way, others rode static bikes. We all did what we could to play our part. We roped in help from other clubs and also family members. Some donated funds. Altogether we raised over £1000 – read more on our Press releases & articles page.

Hilbre Walk – Sunday 14th April 2019

 

Hilbre-Island

In association with the Wro Bar Loft in West Kirby

Join the Rotary Club and the Wro for our 5th annual walk to beautiful Hilbre island in the gorgeous spring weather!  We will be meeting in the Wro Loft (i.e. upstairs) at 10:00am for croissants and coffee, then at 10:30 we’ll set off for the stroll over to Little Eye, Middle and then Hilbre itself.  In previous years we’ve seen some wonderful views and wildlife including seals. Returning by 01:00pm we will round the morning off with warm soup served in the Wro Loft and we’ll also have a prize raffle.

We will be raising money to support the revival of the Tam O’Shanter Urban Farm  – a place that many Wirral families hold very dear.

So between the beautiful views, the healthy exercise and the brilliant charity, that’s three good reasons to join us for a Hilbre walk! Come along and bring the sunshine with you.

Tickets are £10 per adult, £6 per child walking and all tickets MUST be bought in advance for health & safety reasons

Please note that whilst WKRC and The Wro will be with you, this walk is at your own risk.

HEALTH & SAFETY – Safety advice will be given and must be adhered to, and please only follow the described route. Please prepare for various weather conditions, as those of us who have been before know it can be very cold and windy out there so you may want to wrap up warm. It can also be very sunny and hot so suntan lotion wouldn’t go amiss either, just keep an eye on the day’s forecast. Wear appropriate footwear. The route is across sand and rocks with some mud and can be very slippery so flip-flops are not advisable  … also there is no shop on the island (yes, people have asked us this !) so you will need to bring your own water and snacks.
