welcomes you


In common with all Rotary Clubs we operate within areas of service - to our local, national and international communities and to the Club itself. This work is directed by committees appointed by the Club President each Rotary year.  A more detailed overview is given in the box below.

Please click on any of the links to see the projects being undertaken by each committee.

Past President, Sandra Wilkinson says;

"Below are just some of our ongoing club projects:

Monthly outings for lonely elderly people in our community.

Annual planting of bulbs and trees to enhance the open spaces in our district.

Annual outings for disadvantaged and disabled children in our area.

Schools projects include prize givings at local schools. Schools in our area this year regularly compete in the Rotary District Technology Tournament.

Funding young people to attend RYLA a residential leadership course.

Support and encouragement of Peace Study Scholars from overseas at Bradford University.

The offering of Blood Pressure Testing to the public in supermarkets and other public places.

Support for the eradicatiion of Polio throughout the world.

We invariably send aid abroad when major disaster strikes and support Aqua Boxes, Life Straws for purifying water and Disaster Boxes, each box containing shelter for 10 people plus cooking and eating utensils, blankets and sleeping bags etc.
I hope this gives a flavour of what we do. You will find much more on each committee page."

Four Avenues of Service - Overview


The Object of Rotary is to “encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.” Rotary is a service organization. Since 1910, the Rotary Motto has been “Service Above Self.”
Rotary strives to achieve it’s objective of “Service Above Self” through activities in four primary areas. These are often referred to as the Four Avenues of Service.

Club Service
This avenue promotes the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. It involves the activities necessary to make the Club function successfully and achieve its goals.

Rotarians promote and foster high ethical standards in business and professions and promote the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations.
