The Club undertakes a range of community and find raising activities throughout the year. Sadly 2020 sees us unable to carry out many projects. However we are taking time to make plans and prepare for life as it is to be in the future. Our main focus at the moment is on the Reepham Rotary Recovery Initiative where we are raising money to support community organisations in Reepham and surrounding villages.

We have advanced plans for regular events to entertain dementia sufferers and their carers. The team has studied other clubs and organisations to learn as much as possible. We must now await more freedom of movement for vulnerable people before plans can be put into action
Our annual golf tournament was held in June 2019. 2020 plans have been put on hold, but we are hoping for an event in Spring 2021.
Reepham Food Festival
The Club organised the Reepham Food Festival in May 2019. The 2020 event has had to be cancelled. Plans are in hand for May 30 2021.
In normal times, we support the highly successful Youth Speaks tournament at Reepham High School. Our Club helps coach the speakers and provides prizes for the winners. The club contributes to the popular RHS allotments and is helping build the Japanese gardens at the Primary School. Our team of readers continue to work with boys at the Primary School. more
The Technology Tournament is organised with other local clubs, setting students an interesting engineering challenge. The 28 Feb 2020 event was highly successful.
For many years, Rotary worldwide has been worked to immunise everyone to try to eradicate polio. Great strides have been made and there are now only a handful of cases in a few countries. In Reepham – as in communities across the country – we have planted purple crocuses. This is the colour used to mark the fingers of children who have been inoculated so that the teams can be sure that everyone in the community is protected.
We also hold an annual quiz, provide the Christmas trees and support for the Reepham Festival of Light and participate in other community support and fund raising activities.
