Rothwell & Area Social Club

Welcome to the FDM Rothwell and Area Social Club webpage.

All members should have now received a newsletter for September explaining our plans to restart a limited service this Autumn, which will see us limit the number of passengers on the bus, to local destinations. We are pleased to confirm that we have received funding that will allow us to have the bus disinfected with a fogging machine in between each trip.

A copy of the latest newsletter can be found here November Newsletter V1[20248]

We are always looking for new venues or destinations to visit, so please let me know if there is somewhere you would be interested in going. Previous trips have included trips to local market towns, gardens and garden centres as well as to the coast. We also offer trips to the cinema and local theatres.

When considering a destination, we always take into account disabled access and facilities and if necessary, we will undertake a Risk Assessment visit in advance.   Many of our trips include a meal or an opportunity for a drink and a snack, which allows everyone time to relax and catch up with friends or to make new friends.

Keep an eye out on our website for all our latest trips.   If you would like to become a
