Runners taking part in last years Three Forts Challenge

Summer will soon be here and Rotary will be busy around town organising events and supporting many different activities.

Next Sunday, April 30, the Three Forts Challenge takes place with a marathon, or half marathon, around Devil’s Dyke, Chanctonbury Ring and Cissbury Ring.

This popular event raises much needed funds for the Ferring Country Centre which is a fabulous independent charity that provides meaningful training and work experience for people with learning difficulties.

It starts at 10am from Hill Barn Recreation Ground and the website for more information is:

In summer we have a car boot sale on Saturday, August 12, at the Adur Recreation Ground.

This venue is a great location with plenty of parking and attracts many buyers and sellers.

To book a space or for more information contact Marlene on 07715 720363.

Then we have the annual Rotary procession and carnival at the end of August.

On the bank holiday Monday there will be floats, marching bands and a colourful and fun assortment of dancers and singers walking along the seafront from Grand Avenue to Steyne Gardens where there will be charity stalls, a circus tent, refreshments and entertainment.

Rotarians have fun organising these events and it would be great to see you at our events.

You could also join Rotarians in ‘making a difference’ to the lives of others, both locally and internationally.

Have a look at our website:, call us or come along to one of our Monday lunchtime meetings. We would love to welcome you.
