We will be publishing on Facebook a few days before each visit the approximate times that we will be in different streets in each community and this year we will also have an on-line tracker so that you can follow Santa’s Progress. This can be found using the following link https://glympse.com/!SantaOldmeldrumrotary, which will be active at the start of Santa's evening visits.

We will not be doing door to door collections, but if you would like to make a donation to the Rotary Club of Oldmeldrum and District, there will be a couple of elves accompanying Santa with collection buckets, and there will be collection buckets on the side of the sleigh, or you can make an online "Just Giving" donation using this link. www.justgiving.com/campaign/Oldmeldrum-Rotary-Santa-Sleigh

There will also be a QR code on the side of the Sleigh with a link to the Just Giving page.

Merry Christmas from all at The Rotary Club of Oldmeldrum and District.


Welcome to the Rotary Club of Oldmeldrum & District website, and here is a bit about us.

The Rotary Club of Oldmeldrum & District was formed in 1999 and is a lively, active, forward thinking club with an enthusiastic membership of male and female members drawn from the business and professional communities of Oldmeldrum and surrounding areas.

Oldmeldrum has grown from being primarily a centre for the agricultural industry to a busy small friendly town with increasing links to the oil industry of Aberdeen.

In order to encourage and foster the Rotary ideal of service in our local community and beyond, the Club undertakes a variety of service responses in vocation, community and international activities for the promotion of goodwill and understanding.

As well as the regular Monday night meetings in the Redgarth, the Club regularly organises a number of extra mural activities and social events, e.g. the Haddo Easter Egg Hunt and visiting the local communities with our Santa Sleigh. It has developed close links with the local schools, and Club members actively contribute to the improvement of community facilities. The Club also raises significant sums of money for local and international charities.

For further details of these activities, click on the different links at left.

We are a friendly welcoming Club. If you want to know more about us, or would like to attend a meeting, please contact the Secretary, or one of the Club members.
