Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Bishops Stortford
Rotarian Paul Harvey from the Rotary Club of Bishop’s Stortford and his wife Pat were in India from 21st to the 25th of February 2013 taking part in a Polio National Immunisation Drive (NID) as a result of which 160 million children will be protected from Polio. The NID is partly paid for by Rotary. To read about their experiences, click on the “End Polio Now” icon on the left and then click on the “Rotary and Polio in India” link when their blog appears.
Rotary Members are enthusiastic, fun loving and active volunteers, who give their time and talents to serve communities both home and abroad. They are dedicated men and women who share a common interest in helping others.
Established over 60 years ago The Rotary Club of Bishop's Stortford is an integral part of Rotary International who have clubs in almost every country in the world.
Members enjoy good business and social networking opportunities, whilst giving something back to those less fortunate. Our mission is to be effective, enthusiastic, and proactive.
