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.
Have a look at Rotary's new "We're for Communities" video on YouTube. You'll see a few Spires members at exactly 1 minute into the film - for 3 seconds!
Why not also visit our Pooh Sticks website where you will find details of the Annual World Pooh Sticks Championships. You will find photos of our very wet but cheerful Championships on Sunday 13th October.
After many years of meetings at The Red Lion pub in Islip, from 24th September 2013 all of our regular club meetings will be held at the University Club in Mansfield Road in Oxford. Members of Oxford Spires would like to thank the landlord and staff of the Red Lion for their hospitality and support over the years, however we hope that a move to central Oxford will encourage more visitors and potentially new members.
Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday and 4th Tuesday of each month at 8pm in the first floor lounge.
The 2nd Tuesday is generally a business meeting, but a few of us will meet in the bar from 7pm and may eat from 7.30pm. The 4th Tuesday is usually less formal with more chat and a guest speaker, often representing a local, national or international charity. We will meet in the bar from 7pm and most of us will eat at 7.30pm in the bar.
Visitors are always welcome, and we think that the guest speaker evenings are more interesting for first-time visitors. Please contact us in advance, particularly if you wish to join us for dinner.
