The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville

The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville  is an active and enthusiastic Club which was formed from the amalgamation of the Rotary Clubs of Baulkham Hills, Kellyville (2009) and Winston Hills (2015).

Our Club is involved in many activities at both a local and international level covering aspects such as community service, international service, vocational service and youth. 

 Some of our current and recent projects are The Sydney Hills Garden Competition, Jazz at the Pines , Christmas Tree Sales, Writing Competition for local schools, Australia Day ceremony,  sponsorship of the Bourke Public School breakfast programme,   Youth Exchange students, Rotary Youth Leadership, numerous partnership projects in India and Sri Lanka and supporting local causes such as North West Disability Services and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Of course while our projects do provide good fellowship as well as good service we also also like to have fun and fellowship at our social events.

  If you would like to give something back to the community and enjoy fellowship and fun with like minded individuals you are always welcome at one of our meetings.

New Community Garden flourishing in Baulkham Hills

 
 

 

The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville in conjunction with the Hills Shire Council

has  established a Community Garden at Conie Avenue Reserve.

A successful Registration Day was held on-site on the 27th March 2021, and since then weekly meetings have been attended by most of the gardeners each Saturday.

All individual garden plots have now been allocated and there is now a waiting list. In addition a number of members have opted to garden in the general community plots.

It has been great to see the enthusiasm of the members including the family groups and amazing the results being achieved in such a short time. 

The garden was officially opened on Saturday the 1st of May by the Hills Shire Mayor Dr Michelle Byrne, assisted by Rotary Club President John van den Burg and  Project  Chairman Keith Stapley.  President John welcome The Hon. Alex Hawke Federal Member for Mitchell and Minister of Immigration and Multi-Cultural Affairs, The Hon. David Elliott State Member for Baulkham Hills and Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Hills Shire Councillors. President John  also acknowledged the grant provided by the Federal Government to establish the Garden and the sponsorship from the Bunnings Group, Cooks Plumbing Supplies and Turtle Nursery and Landscape Supplies as well as the efforts of both the Rotarians and community members involved in this project.

Jazz at the Pines -

 A very successful Jazz concert was held on May the 16th with the Riverside Jazz Band. Great band,  great audience and great venue, even if it turned a little cold after 3:00 PM. 

There will now be a 3 month winter break, with the next season starting on the 19th September with the ever popular Mike Hallam Hot Six..

The concerts start at 12:30 PM and go until 4:00 PM with a few breaks for the band and the patrons. Chairs and tables are provided or you can bring your own.  Bring your own lunch, nibbles and drinks  and you can also enjoy coffee, tea and cakes which are for sale at the canteen.

Tables can be booked via the Jazz at the Pines website http://www.jazzatthepines.org.au/

Costs are Adults $22, Seniors $18, Families $45 Children 16 and under free. 

Payments are made on entry at the gate and can be cash or via card.

While we don't know what the health regulations will be in September, the health of our patrons, musicians and volunteers remain our first priority and we will of course observe the NSW Health orders then in place.   Under the present COVID19 safe rules we  need to have names and contact details for all attending for contact tracing and  to save time at the gate we suggest that group organisers email a list to glenhope@ozemail.com.au after making their booking.

Jazz at the Pines is a project of The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville with the support of The Hills Shire Council.

All proceeds are directed back to Rotary community projects and donations to charities.
