Club Marshalling at Flint RNLI Bonfire Extravaganza

Members of Hawarden Rotary were invited by RNLI Flint to help marshal the crowds at their annual fireworks display in the grounds of Flint Castle. Over 3,000 people of all ages from Hawarden, Ewloe, Deeside & Holywell communities swelled the crowd. The Flint Beacon was lit, the weather was kind and everyone enjoyed the fabulous firework display. A great community event.

Lighting up Rotary International End Polio Day in Hawarden

Rotarians throughout the world, every year, on 23rd October, celebrate World Polio Day by lighting notable buildings in their locality with the colour purple to raise money in aid of the Rotary Polio Eradication Programme. A temporary purple marker is used on the little finger (‘a purple pinkie’), of every child to signify they have been vaccinated against the wild polio virus. With the exception of just two countries: Pakistan and Afghanistan, the whole world has now been certified polio free through the combined efforts of Rotary International and the World Health Organisation
