18 June: Rotary Club of Dunstable

Dunstable Wombles
Rotary International has added a new area of focus for the first time in it’s 116 year history, The Environment.
To mark this new area of focus, members of Rotary Dunstable have formed a Community Corps, for people who want to get involved in projects without becoming full members. President David Footitt said that the global pandemic has made everyone think differently, and there has been a huge increase in people wanting to put something back and make their town a better place.
The new group, named Dunstable Wombles, recently blitzed Green Lanes, and Court Drive in the town centre. 14 Wombles collected 9 bags of litter in Green Lanes, and 3 bags in Court Drive.
Chief Womble Zoe recently collected a crisp packet, and noticed the best before date was 1998! This shows the need to be mindful when disposing our wrappers. We are already planning our next Wombling session for early July. If you’d like to join us please contact Rotary by email “” or on Facebook Dunstable Wombles

26 January: Free Dial-a-Prayer

The dial a prayer and news service has been a real blessing to some of our more isolated people as they are able to phone and listen, and the addition of a weekly message from Richard and I will hopefully be an added blessing to many.

I would encourage you to print off information about these phone lines, and post them to anyone you know who may be feeling lonely and cut off so that they can receive words of support and spiritual sustenance in these challenging days.
