About us

   Welcome to the Rotary Club of Farnham

Our club is number 166 in the British Isles and was formed in 1924. We have 45 members who live in the Farnham area.  We meet each Thursday at lunchtime in The Bush Hotel, Farnham and we usually have a speaker at three of our meetings every month.  We are part of Rotary International and our main activity is raising funds to support local charities and to react with financial help whenever an international major disaster or calamity occurs.

If you are a Rotarian visiting the area you will be made welcome at one of our meetings (please contact Roy Waight on tel: 01252 797136).  If you are interested in joining Rotary, please contact our President for further information (president@rotaryfarnham.co.uk).

International Projects

In 2016, our club adopted a project to build Polytunnels for the cultivation of food in Kerala India at the location of the Childrens Homes in Kerala State ('CHIKS').  This charity has its roots in Farnham. The project was completed in June 2017. To see the details of the project, click following file:


Our club raised over £3000 in May 2015 towards relief of the earthquake in Nepal. An amount of £1500 was sent in  September 2016 for a special pipeline project to be supervised by the RC of the Himalayan Gurkhas. See the report on this project at the following link:
