An old club with a young outlook
The Rotary Club of Yeovil was Chartered in July 1922 and was one of the first clubs to be formed in the United Kingdom.
Members represent a wide range of professions including teaching, the military, engineering, law, accountancy, journalism, farming, property development, photograpy, motor sport promotion, hospital consultants, accountancy and financial services.The Club has nearly 40 members, both men and women, ranging from their 30s to their 80s. Weekly meetings are informal and the club has an excellent record of supporting its local community.
Social events are frequently held and partners, friends and family are encouraged to join in.

Members and friends enjoy the Annual Rotary Club Walk
On Saturday 21st April, 16 or so hardy Rotarians and partners, including our youngest recruit,
Charlotte Fernando and 3 guests, assembled at the Visitor Centre car park at Hardy’s Cottage, Higher Bockhampton, for the 14th (?) (almost) annual Rotary Walk in ideal walking weather. Brilliant planning as usual by Brian, especially as they had some rain in Yeovil. The rout went past Hardy’s Cottage and out onto Duddle Heath with great views across the Frome Valley to the Dorset chalk coastal ridge. We crossed lovely meadows and various branches of the glorious,braided, chalk stream and only once did we need the help of a fallen tree to avoid the mud and water. After lunch we went through Lower Bockhampton on to Stinsford, and the churchyard with several generations of Hardy graves, and on through Kingston Maurward estate. We strolled across green pastures and back to the Car Park. This was a superb 8 ½ mile walk in excellent company and beautiful, varied countryside, and not too strenuous. Our thanks go , as ever, to Brian and Yvonne, who also organised a splendid gathering in the evening at Hazelbury Mill.
