Oxford Rotaract Oct2014
Pooh, Tigger and the Chipmunk playing Pooh Sticks March2014

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 is looking for a new home.

Can you help us? Visit our Pooh Sticks website to see what we are looking for and let us know if you can help to find a venue for the 32nd championships.


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.
