Welcome to the Oxford Spires website!

We hope these pages will show you some of the activities we enjoy as part of Rotary International in Britain and Ireland (RIBI), Rotary District 1090, and as a small group of people who like to get involved in fun fundraising events and community activities. These events can support local, national and international charities and not-for-profit groups.


The World Pooh Sticks Championships has found a new home

We have announced our new home! Visit our Pooh Sticks website to see where the next Championships will take place.


Oxford Spires caught on film!

Have a look at Rotary's "We're for Communities" video on YouTube. You'll see a few Spires members at exactly 1 minute into the film - for 3 seconds!

Our Meetings

Our club meetings are held at the University Club in Mansfield Road in Oxford. Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday and 4th Tuesday of each month at 8pm and we meet from 7pm for a drink and dinner.


Visitors are always welcome, and we think that the guest speaker evenings on the 4th Tuesday of the month are more interesting for first-time visitors. Please contact us in advance, particularly if you wish to join us for dinner.
